I know the important work of the City will continue in my absence, and I look forward to re-joining you all soon.”

Today Therrien said her Doctor had given the green light to her coming back to work.

“I am returning to work part-time this week, and will be back full-time next week. I want to thank Acting Mayor Andrew Beamer and Deputy Mayor Akapo for filling in for me the last few weeks and all of council for their ongoing work for our community” Therrien said in a statement released today.
