    I was honoured to welcome a new family from Syria to Sarnia today. To my left is Jaber Al Mudeer. Jaber's wife Houda Alzoubi is in the black head dress directly behind their son, 4 yr old Mohammad. In front of me are Mohammad's twin sister Nour and 6 yr old Odai. They arrived Tuesday. Helping to translate and joining us in the photo are newly arrived from Kurdistan (4 months), Karwan Weli and his 5 yr old son Adam (left of pic) and in the purple shirt, is 9 yr old son Zhenar, who is standing directly next to his mother (Karwan's wife), Siham Ibrahim. Welcome to Sarnia! You are safe now.

    The missing woman has been found. The Sarnia Police website is having trouble, so I've attached a screen shot.

    Well, here's the news from tonight. Also, I didn't say "rather than a pool". I actually said the opposite. I indicated it could include a new pool, which is clearly what most people are saying they want. That's the point of the master plan; to let the public have a say. Like it or not, this pool is completely toast as is. The work to be done this summer will allow staff to know if it's even repairable, then everyone can decide what best to do. It could and should also include new options for kids, that are available at no cost and year-round at Germain Park. Our kids deserve that. http://www.theobserver.ca/2016/04/11/city-hall-notebook

    Age and neglect strike again. This Council meeting we face another sad reality. By all accounts, the building at Jackson Pool should be condemned and the pool is completely falling apart. So what do we do? Replace it with a splash pad/play area? Change Germain Park to include year-round ammenities like ball hockey rinks and fenced in basketball court areas capable of hosting tournaments, but remain open and free to all kids? Repair the pool (which would basically be a complete rebuild)? Let me know.

    Completely misleading messaging. There's no money out, BW Power owns and maintains the panels, and pays the city for use of the rooftops. There is no debt. Just money in. Simple. https://twitter.com/bacarnegie/status/712312263777067008

    Further to the need to address vandalism. Here is an example of costs and how they affect us. There has been consistent repeated middle of the night access to Canatara Beach by people in vehicles, tearing up sensitive sands (which are NOT replenishable at this part of Lake Huron). There have been repeated fires, such as last week's tearing up of some of the Board Walk, and lighting it on fire. As a result, staff are implementing new control measures. Previous attempts at gating the park were shouted down by the public, so armour stone will adorn the entrances of Canatara Beach, to prevent vehicle access to the beach. This will be an expensive measure and should be unnecessary. Here are just some of the costs to us: the already drained expenses of staff time to clean up repeat occurrences, replacements costs of assets, such as the board walk and recycle bins used for fires, and now the cost of the armour stone. Where does the money come from? Well, I can tell you we won't be able to replace the jogging trail anytime soon, which is in desperate shape. Despite this, you will see continued efforts to improve key elements of the park. I thank staff for their continued efforts to keep Canatara Park as viable as possible. We all own this beautiful and rare asset. It's up to us to look after it.

    Politics and personalities aside, this is a sad day for the Ford family. For better or worse, he got a lot of people involved in politics. Cancer doesn't discriminate. My condolences to those who cared about Councillor Ford and his family.

    My motion passed tonight to have staff work with police to act and report back on efforts to curb vandalism. I think. I mean, I know it passed, but unfortunately a few Councillors seemed confused as to whether or not property damage was even an issue or whether or not we should be acknowledging it. I also know and acknowledged that staff and police were already making efforts in this regard, since, they had actual input into my motion. It seemed weird when certain Councillors insisted that they were already doing something about it as if I hadn't said it, while at the same time saying it wasn't a big deal. Confused? Me too. lol. Politics. :)

    Speaking with your dollars works. This is great news for Southern Ontario's growing regions. Let's learn from this about the power of smart spending and support our OWN local economy.

    I'll be coming out with some round table dates in the near future. It will be a chance for us to get together and connect, so I can hear what's on your mind. Some things coming down the pipe are new technology at City Hall (which should provide for livestreaming of Council Meetings, something I've long advocated for), the completion of Centennial Park, some safer roads initiatives. What else? Think about it, and when we get together, let's have a chat.

    Do you know an Eco-Warrior? A business or class doing green things? A community group setting a positive example? Maybe they'll win a Sarnia Go Green Award! Nominations are now being accepted! http://goo.gl/YmZulN

    Great turn out at Green Drinks last night. I was happy to accept a cheque from BSI Gen Y to the City of Sarnia for recycling bins at Centennial Park.

    I always struggle for the words to celebrate International Women's Day. For me, I was raised by my mother, had mostly women bosses and teachers and have many female collaborators in community and business. It's hard for me to conceive that the culture still pressures women in different ways, but it does. I started my day with my daughter stressed about her bra strap showing, which is a big no-no at school; a strap that looks like a t-shirt strap, but an offence, nonetheless, and only but a small example of the senseless standards imposed on someone, simply because of their gender. Today, though, I'd rather celebrate the many great women in my life. To all of you trailblazers who face the daily challenges head-on, who strive to acheive new ground and thrive on paving the way for the next generation... for young women like my daughter, I thank you.

    I'm happy to help finally bring this City to the table with the rest of the province. It's beyond reason that we've intentionally chosen to live on an island unto ourselves, and everyday I see proof of how it has "worked for us so far." Again, I'm thrilled to help move this city forward... slowly, surely, one step at a time. http://www.theobserver.ca/2016/03/01/city-council-was-penny-wise-and-pound-foolish-in-cancelling-amo-membership-says-veteran-councillor

    I was happy to meet with Business Leaders, along with MPP Taras Natyshak this afternoon. It's always great to advocate for Sarnia, with whomever is willing to help. Taras is a real advocate for Southern Ontario. I know we were heard today.
