Posted on 07/06/2021
Mayor Philip Brown officially presented Charlottetown’s highest honour – the Key to the City – to Prince Edward Island’s Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Heather Morrison, and the Province’s Chief of Nursing and Professional Practice Officer, Marion Dowling, along with healthcare professionals across Prince Edward Island who have continued working diligently to protect Islanders and stop the spread of COVID-19.

“Due to the expertise, diligence, and collaborative effort of our healthcare professionals, I am thrilled to be able to offer the Key to the City in person and offer a proper thank you,” said Mayor Philip Brown. “On behalf of Charlottetown City Council and all our citizens, we would like to thank our Key to the City recipients for everything they have done to keep us safe during this ongoing public health emergency.”

The Key to the City was presented virtually last year during the Community Foundation of PEI “Stay-At-Home-Online Gala.” It was presented officially in person at a small ceremony at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Wednesday morning.

“It’s an honour to accept the Key to the City on behalf of the team at the Chief Public Health Office and our partners too,” said Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Heather Morrison. “When I reflect on the level of cooperation and response from those in Charlottetown when things seemed especially challenging, we could not have asked for better collaboration or support from the City, local businesses, organizations and residents.”

The City of Charlottetown continues to work closely with the government of Prince Edward Island, following the guidance and recommendations from the provincial and federal health officials on COVID-19.
