Mayor Mauro Declares Emergency

City of Thunder Bay, COVID-19

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~April 23, 2020  (LSN)  Mayor Bill Mauro has declared a state of emergency for the City of Thunder Bay, effective today at 2 pm and until further notice, in response to the threat of COVID-19.

This aligns with Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s Declaration of Emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act and the evolving environment in which the municipality is delivering critical and essential services.

This aligns with Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s Declaration of Emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act and the evolving environment in which the municipality is delivering critical and essential services.

“Today I am declaring a state of emergency for the City of Thunder Bay in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Mauro. “These are difficult times.  As the public health response continues to evolve, with additional testing and enhanced screening, pressures increase on us as a Corporation to meet our staffing requirements. As a result, we need to have available to us all the tools that will allow us to continue critical and essential services to our residents.”

Mayor Mauro received a letter from Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, dated April 16, advising that municipalities must make a declaration of emergency to have flexibility during the emergency to redeploy or reassign staff as required.

“The declaration is required by the Province in order to give us flexibility to redeploy employees, notwithstanding agreements that may be in place. I have reached out to union leaders to express to them that this declaration is necessary to give force to the Provincial order.”

Mayor Mauro made the declaration in consultation with the City’s Emergency Response Team led by the City Manager. The Mayor has also had discussions regarding a declaration with the Municipal Emergency Control Group, including the Thunder Bay District Medical Officer of Health. The Municipal Emergency Control Group (MECG) held its weekly virtual meeting today with various community partners, including emergency services, health, education and utility sector representatives, as part of its ongoing management of the COVID-19 situation.

City Manager Norm Gale adds that any redeployment will be done in consultation with union leadership. “The City of Thunder Bay appreciates the support of the union groups representing its employees through the COVID-19 emergency response and will continue to work through them collaboratively when reassigning staff or making other adjustments as required,” he said. “Our positive, respectful relationship is a priority.”

Mayor Mauro said the declaration is also important because people must be more vigilant than ever.

“With this declaration of emergency, I am also sending a strong and clear signal that COVID-19 is a threat to the people of Thunder Bay. Everyone must do their part to prevent the spread of this deadly virus. Public Health has said we have benefitted as a community from the actions we have already taken to cease non-essential services.  We must do even more to keep ourselves safe and prevent spread. Stay home, stay safe, Thunder Bay.”
