Greater Madawaska Mayor Acclaimed Warden. Delivers Inaugural Address


Pembroke, (ON): Greater Madawaska Township Mayor Peter Emon formally took the Declaration of Office on December 10, 2013 and as such he assumed the Office of the Warden of the County of Renfrew for a second term.

Following a brief ceremony Mayor Briscoe and Mayor Rabishaw, (mover and seconder respectively) presented Warden Emon the Chain of Office for 2014. The Warden then spoke to some of the challenges ahead for 2014. On the further twinning of Highway 17: "Along with the Warden’s Advisory Committee and with the support of our community we will continue our conversations with both the Federal and Provincial governments to stress the need for the predictable and timely twinning of Highway 17 through the County of Renfrew and beyond. This is a critical piece of transportation infrastructure which is necessary for the continued economic stability of our community, and the twinning is absolutely essential for the future and necessary expansion and diversification of our communities’ economy and our ability to compete with the rest of Ontario and beyond.”

The Warden went on to comment on the Endangered Species Act and the challenge that County Council faces: "This is a significant issue for rural Ontario and for Renfrew County. It has created a number of problems, increased costs and significant work delays and stoppages for businesses in almost all economic sectors in our diverse community. Agriculture, construction, road building, land development and new home construction, forestry, mining and tourism investment have all been adversely affected by the time consuming and complicated requirements of the Endangered Species Act.”

Warden Emon spoke briefly about his recent trip to the southern United States as part of a delegation to prospect business investment attraction for Renfrew County in the nuclear science and technology sector, and to other similar communities that have adapted to meet the changes similar to those of AECL’s transition to a Government Owned, Company Operated model.

The Warden also made this invitation to those in attendance: "I would encourage each and every one of you and your families to take the opportunity to explore the arts, culture and historical treasures we have hidden away and waiting discovery here in Renfrew County.”

Warden Emon was born and raised in Calabogie and attended the University of Windsor where he earned his Bachelor of Social Work. He was previously employed at Renfrew County Family & Children’s Services. Warden Emon resides in Calabogie with his family and is steadfast in his resolve to continue to promote Renfrew County as the best place to live, work and play.
