Omicron variant forces postponement of MPP’s levee and citizen recognition night

HURON-BRUCE – The rapidly spreading Omicron variant has forced Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson to postpone her annual Remarkable Citizens recognition for a second consecutive year.

“This program has a long history of celebrating individuals who inspire a united sense of community,” Thompson said. “But, unfortunately, we must also acknowledge that it would be unsafe to do so at this time.”

The MPP added that the event, along with her annual New Year’s Levee originally scheduled for Jan. 12, have been postponed until further notice.

“Nominees who will be recognized for their 2021 efforts will be notified accordingly. Special consideration will be given to individuals who have gone beyond the call of duty to help their community manage the COVID-19 pandemic,” Thompson said.
