Embracing a Local New Year's Resolution for a Thriving Cornwall Ontario

Dear Residents of Cornwall, 

As we step into the promising dawn of a new year, I find myself reflecting on the ways we can collectively contribute to the growth and prosperity of our beloved community. This year, I've decided to adopt a New Year's resolution that not only benefits me personally but also holds the potential to uplift Cornwall as a whole – a commitment to shop locally whenever possible.

There's an inherent charm and vitality in supporting local businesses. By choosing to purchase goods and services within Cornwall, we foster a stronger sense of community and connection. Our local entrepreneurs are the backbone of our town, pouring their passion and dedication into their establishments. When we opt for local shops, markets, and artisans, we directly contribute to the success and sustainability of these businesses, ensuring that Cornwall remains a vibrant and thriving place to live.

Moreover, shopping locally has far-reaching positive effects on our economy. It helps create jobs within the community, reducing unemployment and enhancing the overall financial well-being of our neighbours. The dollars we invest in local businesses circulate within Cornwall, creating a multiplier effect that benefits us all.

Environmental sustainability is another compelling reason to embrace this resolution. By minimizing our reliance on products that require long-distance transportation, we reduce our carbon footprint. Supporting local producers often means fresher, locally sourced goods, which not only contributes to a healthier environment but also promotes a sustainable and responsible approach to consumption.

Let's make 2024 the year we prioritize our community's prosperity. Together, by choosing Cornwall-based businesses, we can make a significant impact on the local economy, create a more sustainable environment, and build a stronger sense of unity among us.

Wishing you all a prosperous and locally inspired New Year!

Warm regards,

Lance Boisvert
A Proud Resident of Cornwall
