I’ve never been to Council Chambers before, except to see my friend Mhem from Burma become a Canadian citizen. On Monday, I’ll made my second trip for another historic event. Debbie Amaroso became the first female mayor in Sault Ste. Marie. Debbie is an incredible person and I am excited about the passion she has for community engagement.
I was there with my iPhone, OWLE, and tripod streaming the event live. You can watch the recording below. The best part is the first five minutes, with the pipe and drum procession, singing of O Canada by a darling little girl, followed by Mayor Amaroso’s swearing in and speech.
