A MESSAGE FROM CHIEF & COUNCIL – AUGUST 28, 2020

August 28th, 2020

Aaniin Curve Lake,

Wireless connectivity is important to our pandemic recovery, future economic development and the education and quality of life of our community members. Too often we hear from our membership about dropped calls, poor signal and overall lacking connectivity to our 24/7 world.

In February of this year, we received an offer from Bell Canada to install a new cell tower to increase the quality of our cell service on-reserve. This is a welcome opportunity for the community to establish good, working relationships with these companies while providing essential connectivity to our community.

20% WATER CONSERVATION URGED AS LEVEL 2 LOW WATER CONDITION CONTINUES

August 13th, 2020

High Temperatures and dry conditions throughout the Otonabee Region watershed have resulted in the declaration of a Level 2 Low Water Condition by the Otonabee Region Water Response Team.

Otonabee Conservation analyzes the condition of the watershed on a monthly basis; low water status is determined based on the available data including temperature, precipitation, and stream flow.

The Level 2 drought continues because both 1-month and 3-month rainfall receipts are below 60% of normal, with May/June/July as the fourth driest 3-month period since Confederation.

One Less Thing to Worry About

As families prepare to face an unprecedented and unpredictable school year, there is still time to make sure that children and youth are up to date on their immunizations. Unfortunately, we do not have a vaccine against COVID-19 yet, but living through a pandemic has accentuated the role that immunization plays in inducing immunity that allows us to socialize and carry on activities like singing in a choir or sharing a meal. Immunizations enhance and boost our natural defences that keep us safe from intruders like bacteria and viruses.
