I know a number of people were having difficulty signing in to the Special Meeting of Council May 4th, 2020 – we continue to work on that – making it easier for people to connect to our virtual meetings. We thank you for your patience as we learn these new realities. For those of you who were able to hook up, Council thanks you for your interest.
Thank you, Deputy Mayor Debbie Hart, for stepping up to the plate when the community needed you most. We are in your debt. I would like to thank Cllrs Shaun Defeo and Greg Waldock for supporting my appointment as Mayor. I look forward to finalizing our team with the addition of Cllr Chantelle Dufault-Tucker and working with all of you for the future of Ignace.
To the people of Ignace, I want to thank all of you for your support during my time as Councillor. I know Council can continue to count on that same support as we move Ignace forward – first past this global pandemic and then into a brighter future. I encourage you to continue to reach out to me for any reason or for no reason at all. I serve at your pleasure.
Council thanks the staff of the Township for their tireless efforts in ensuring that all the t’s are crossed, the i’s dotted and the work was done as we went through this transition period.
We continue to access resources and protections afforded by Ignace’s Declaration of Emergency on April 20, 2020 as we make our way through and past the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you to the Emergency Operations Control group for your efforts in keeping Ignace safe.
I look forward to working with and for all of you. Penny Lucas, Mayor
Township of Ignace
