Mayor Christian Provenzano offered the following remarks of the 2021 Canadian Federal Election:
“On behalf of the City of Sault Ste. Marie and City Council, I want to congratulate Terry Sheehan on his re-election as our Member of Parliament. Terry has always worked hard for our community and I am confident that he will continue to do so. I appreciate the positive and productive working relationship that we have developed and I look forward to it continuing.
I would also like to congratulate Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government on its re-election. I believe the Prime Minister has demonstrated a strong commitment to Sault Ste. Marie. I look forward to finalizing projects that are underway, undertaking new initiatives consistent of common interest and working together to address critical challenges like climate change.
To all of the candidates who put their names forward and the countless volunteers that supported their campaigns, thank you all for your time and your effort. It takes commitment and dedication to participate in a campaign and you should all be recognized and commended for your efforts. Our democracy depends on your participation, and your City is grateful for your respective contributions.
I also want to recognize the hard working volunteers and Elections Canada staff for making sure we all had the opportunity to vote, and for their dedication over the past few days during the vote counting process.”
