Mayor Mayberry's July 2017 Blog

On the eve of Canada Day 2017, the 150 anniversary of our country, I have had several conversations about “what are you doing tomorrow to celebrate?” While I hope to enjoy at least a portion of each municipality’s events across our county, I have heard a number of alternative activities for Canada Day 150. From barbequing with family and friends to going to the cottage, from taking part in the local parade to attending the Highland Games and fireworks, people are looking forward to a time of celebration. And celebrate we should, for there is virtually no other country in the world that has experienced the safety and security, the peace and prosperity enjoyed by Canadians. We are indeed fortunate people!

But our good fortune comes not from the natural wealth of our nation, but rather our collective and communal vision for a community in which we all belong. Our enduring ability to recognize those from a variety of backgrounds and understandings as being partners and equal participants in our communities has been foundational in creating the peace (which is essential for our prosperity) we enjoy. It is the love, respect and appreciation we demonstrate for each other that will ultimately determine the quality of the life, and community, in which we live. Great communities are the outcome of our collective actions, so let’s keep up the good work.

Happy Canada Day!
