Canada Day 2022

Happy Canada Day

The Canada Day 2022 holiday weather is warm and humid! The parks and playgrounds see friends and neighbours slowly coming back together to meet in person. Andrea and I attended our very first public outing in early June. It almost felt odd to be among groups of people again.

The people adjusted best seemed to be those comfortable in their own skin, who maintained a regular routine, saw opportunity in the time to improve themselves, their home, or do things that normally stay on the perpetual back burner.

This year’s ongoing lack of rain has kept much of my spring over-seeding and top dressing from taking root, despite the lawn watering we do. I am looking forward to reconnecting with my many friends in Meadowvale and Central Erin Mills as my campaign for the Ward 9 seat on City Council gets under way.

For those who always ask, our cat, Merlin, is the last of our iconic cats who came with me on so many public events as an MPP. The old boy is now 19 years old, and has slowed down in the last year. He’s on a regime of medicine many seniors would recognize, and is loved and cared for in the fading months of his feline life.
