A Message from Mayor Mike Hurley

Statement Condemning Acts of Racism

As a City, we strongly condemn racism. Hate and racism have no place in our society. In the wake of COVID-19, we have seen increased attacks against members of ethnic communities around Metro Vancouver and beyond. These attacks will not be tolerated. We take great pride in being a diverse and inclusive City, and are firmly committed to upholding and protecting these values.

Let's Work Together To Keep the Burnaby Restart Going

July 30, 2020

To my fellow Burnaby residents,

Burnaby’s facilities are back – in a new way.

It’s been almost five months since we made the difficult decision to close Burnaby’s fields, recreation facilities and cultural centres to slow the spread of COVID-19, and in that time we have made incredible progress as a community.

Three indoor pools at Eileen Dailly, C.G. Brown and Edmonds are the most recent facilities to re-open, joining a long list of programs and facilities which have opened in ways that safeguard public health during the COVID-19 pandemic. Getting to this point speaks to the resilience and perseverance of our community. We have all played our part by following physical distancing guidelines, wearing PPE when appropriate and staying at home when we feel sick. Re-opening in a safe way is building confidence, and we look forward to offering expanded opportunities to enjoy City programs and facilities this fall.

As a community, we have demonstrated our ability to take action in response to a crisis. It’s that same commitment that will help ensure our success as we tackle our other major priorities of climate change and housing affordability. 

Though the pandemic and protecting public health is very much today’s priority, it’s helpful to take a broader perspective, and remember that this time will eventually pass. Our staff at Burnaby Village Museum understand this only too well, and they’re already asking residents to share their experiences, stories, photos, objects and mementos of this unique time of COVID-19 in Burnaby. I encourage you to visit to find out how to share yours. One day, these will form part of a future exhibit at the museum and we can all look back and reflect.

For now, let’s all continue to follow the advice of Dr. Bonnie Henry. Be calm, be kind and be safe. By doing these things, we’ll have even more to look forward to as the summer wraps up and we move into the fall.

Mayor Mike Hurley
