Ontario Regional Council Planning and discussion – John Purdie


The Executive discussed whether the ORC should be completely Virtual or a combination (Hybrid) of virtual and in-person.

Heather has provided John with available locations for an Hybrid / in-person ORC.

Judy had concerns as did Chris and Tom Z regarding logistics around how we would go about this Hybrid.
