2021 State of the City Address Postponed Due to Lockdown Extension

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 14:51


(London – January 13, 2021) – In light of yesterday’s announcement from the Province of Ontario that it would be extending the provincial lockdown for another 28 days and in keeping with the best recommendations from our health experts and government, the London Chamber of Commerce will be postponing its live streaming of the 2021 State of the City Address.

“We will work with our various vendors, sponsors and the Mayor’s staff to determine the next best date for the event,” says Chamber CEO, Gerry Macartney. “We regret any inconvenience but out of an abundance of caution, we feel this is the best decision possible.

“The situation across Ontario is dire, and the same is true here in the London-region.” Says Mayor Holder. “Under the circumstances, and in line with the directive issued today by Premier Ford, I am in full agreement with the Chamber of Commerce that this year’s State of the City be postponed. My message to Londoners, in the interim, is a simple one: stay safe, and stay healthy.”
