Huron-Bruce Member of Provincial Parliament Lisa Thompson has cancelled the MPP’s levee and citizen recognition night.

In a release, Thompson says the program has a long history of celebrating individuals who inspire a united sense of community, but unfortunately, we must also acknowledge that it would be unsafe to do so at this time.”

The event was scheduled for January 12th, and Thompson says that the tough decision to invoke further restrictions and return to online learning was not an easy one to make, but there is general concern for the province’s health care system as a result of the Omicron variant, and says we all need to do our part to help curb the latest spread.
