The City has proclaimed Oct. 4 as Sisters in Spirit Day, a day to honour the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Gender Diverse people. It is an opportunity to support families who have lost a loved one and help create a safe space for understanding and healing.

Violence against Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse people continues to be disproportionately high in Canada. We encourage residents to use Sisters in Spirit Day to help raise public awareness about how past and current trauma from racism, cultural genocide, and gender-based violence continues to impact First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities.

You can participate by attending the local Sisters in Spirit Vigil hosted by Timmins Native Friendship Centre on October 4 at 11:00 a.m. from their location on Kirby Ave. You can also light a candle and place it in a window of your home or reach out to local Indigenous agencies and ask how they are taking action to help bring an end to violence and, more importantly, how you can help.

Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people have the right to be safe and free from violence. To learn more, visit the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. The Native Women’s Association of Canada is also a great resource on how to create meaningful moments of dialogue and reflection that support Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse people.

The Timmins Fire Department has helped fill the shelves at the Timmins and South Porcupine Food Banks with over 14,000 pounds of food and $5,600 in cash donations! This would not have been possible without the tremendous response from the community.

The Timmins Food Bank received 8,500 pounds of food and $4,405 in cash donations and had close to 60 volunteers come out and help collect, sort and place food. The South Porcupine Food Bank received 6,000 pounds of food and close to $1,200 in cash donations.

Paula Puddy, Commission Secretary
Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario
PO Box 37018 Southdale
London, Ontario
N6E 3T3

Dear Ms. Puddy,

RE: Impacts of boundary redistribution in Northern Ontario

On behalf of the City of Timmins, I am writing with concerns about the proposed boundary changes and recommended redistribution of federal electoral districts. Any reduction of Northern Ontario’s federal ridings would result in the underrepresentation of our northern communities.

I understand that adjustments are being considered to ensure citizens are adequately represented by Parliament. While the proposed changes may address population growth in Ontario’s southern centres, it would leave Ontario’s remote and rural regions struggling to be heard at the federal level.

This proposal will have the effect of diminishing Northern Ontario’s voice in Government and see MPs have to serve northern regions the size of countries in Europe. The Commission must take into consideration that our geographical size, not our population, already produces significant constraints on accessibility, immigration, and the conducting of business when access to supplies is hampered by long distance. Expanding the current boundaries would pose important challenges to maintain a level of engagement and representation from Parliament.

Further, the City of Timmins has established a Relationship Agreement with the Mushkegowuk Council to examine issues of joint interest. In the spirit of Reconciliation, I have reached out to the Mushkegowuk and the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation leadership and was surprised to learn that there was no federal consultation with the northern Indigenous communities. There is a vital link between the James Bay coastal communities and the City of Timmins for health care, transportation, education and economic development. This proposed redistribution does not take these important ties that bind our communities together into account. I cannot support any boundary redistribution plan that marginalizes our partners and does not respect the important right of our First Nations communities to be consulted.

In conclusion, I am asking that the Commission maintain the current number of electoral districts in Northern Ontario. We rely on our Member of Parliament as a liaison between our citizens and the federal government and strongly encourage the proposed boundary changes be reconsidered.

Sincerely,

Mayor Kristin Murray, City of Timmins

Thank you for your continued patience.
