Statement from Mayor Letham on the closing of Target
The announcement earlier this morning that Target would be closing their entire Canadian operation including in Lindsay was difficult news to hear.
Since opening Target has been a steady employer providing area residents with jobs and wages here in our community.
While it won’t make up for the loss of jobs, news that the company is planning to provide 16 weeks of pay to each employee while transitioning through the closure will certainly be a benefit to many in our community.
Council will continue to work and make decisions to help foster an environment for growth in our community and with the pending completion of the North West Trunk we can look forward to new development and opportunities in the near future.
Today, let’s keep the employees and their families in our thoughts and minds and start working together to strengthen our communities, build on our strengths and foster opportunities for a better tomorrow.
Mayor Andy Letham
