Ladies and Gentlemen

Close to frost last night. Hockey starting this week. It won’t be long before we are looking for the mitts and boots. Never a dull moment in Midland.

It’s no secret that over the last five years businesses in our area have lost a number of high paying jobs. One sector that seems to be bucking that trend is healthcare. This Monday a group of our healthcare entrepreneurs will start a series of meetings to identify new business opportunities and grow new healthcare jobs in our community.  This is a critical part of rebuilding our economy.  We wish the Healthcare Innovators every success.
On Tuesday the 17th the municipality will be meeting with the Huronia Museum Board. The two critical items before us are working together to ensure the museum roof is fixed for this winter and setting the direction for a longer term relationship.  Details of meeting location are still pending.
The $450 million construction project at Waypoint is nearing completion.  This Wednesday September the 18th an initial tour will be held for local officials.  Hopefully public tours of this impressive facility will soon be available.  One meeting that you can attend – the Police Service Board will be meeting at Town Hall at 4:00 pm.
The exceptional series A Day in the Life continues with Mr. Justice Michael Moldaver, one of the nine Justices of the Supreme Court of Canada. This may be the first time that a Justice of the Supreme Court has been in Midland. That’s Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30 pm at MCC.  Tickets are available at
Thursday September the 19th will likely see a series of meetings at Town Hall. The capital budget meeting will start at 6:00 pm.  A special meeting of Council may follow – check the Town website next week at
Friday will see the Waterfront Project Steering Committee meeting at 1:00 pm at the Town. Please remember you are invited to our public review meeting on the Waterfront Project coming up on September 26th at 6:00 pm at the NSSRC.
