Peer to Peer Network thanks the Covid-19 Task Force
Editor’s note: The following letter was written collectively by members of the Landscape Ontario Peer to Peer Network and addressed to members of the COVID-19 Task Force and association staff.

As exceptionally proud Landscape Ontario and ‘Peer to Peer’ members, we would like to express our sincere thanks for the outstanding leadership, support and commitment you have demonstrated on our behalf, as we navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

You have provided us with the most up-to-date information through the Resource Hub, frequent and timely updates, webinars, commentaries and countless other things. It is through these efforts that you have helped us all remain positive and hopeful.

To the many people: Tony DiGiovanni and the leadership team, the volunteer-led COVID-19 Task Force, all of the LO staff, our president Dave Wright, industry leaders and so many others who have worked endlessly and tirelessly on our behalf, to protect and enhance our professional reputations with the public, and various levels of government — we extend our sincere thank you. You have led us through this crisis, to the point where we are now able to continue our livelihood.

As members, in an effort to demonstrate our appreciation, we will continue to commit to the professionalism exemplified by your efforts and to continue to represent Landscape Ontario as proud and professional green industry members. We will endeavour to lead our own teams and supply them with the knowledge, commitment and support you have given us. You have taught us how to step up when many thought we could not. You gave us direction, courage and bolstered our spirits. You have proven to us that as a profession we have the support and intuitive leadership that will keep us going forward and viable in the future. There is no better way to honour what you have done than for us to go forward as professionals and represent our association to the level that you have demonstrated in this most complex time.

Respectfully submitted,
Landscape Ontario Peer to Peer members
