A word from the mayor

City > Municipal Life > A word from the mayor

Dear residents:

This month I chaired the Council session from home by videoconference. Don’t worry, I’m not sick and I have no COVID symptoms. But since I attended an event the previous weekend, I decided it would be best not to take chances with the health of the Council members and residents present. That’s why my voice might sound a little off on the FB video. If any points seems unclear, by all means, feel free to contact me.

At this time last year we had just enjoyed a tremendously successful S.O.U.PE Festival. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the 2020 S.O.U.PE Festival for obvious reasons. While disappointing after its huge success in 2019, the festival will be back eventually. In light of the circumstances, the Community Services team is taking on the challenge of providing diversified programming in step with public health rules. Free skating is back on Saturday evenings at the Cité des jeunes arena and teachers and associations are offering a variety of courses. See our Fall Activity Directory for details.

Public and community life is slowly returning to normal in NDIP. Let’s all enjoy it without forgetting that the pandemic continues. Let’s keep taking the necessary steps to protect one another.

Your mayor,
