The third New Year levee will take place on Sunday January 7th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm., at the Art Gallery of Burlington.

The event is being sponsored by Member of Parliament Karina Gould and MPP Eleanor McMahon.

Levee Gould welcoming a new CanadianA levee is an old tradition in Ontario. In many communities the levee is held at city hall and sponsored by the Mayor and members of council.

There was a time when it was a pretty formal event – not so with the event Gould and McMahon sponsor.

Burlington’s Mayor hasn’t been part of the event the first two years – no mention of his taking part in the 2018 event.

Perhaps the sponsorship will be broadened in 2019.

It is a fun event and the speeches are kept to a minimum. It’s a time for the political set to gather and do what the politicians and the political junkies do
