Carleton Place Mayor Responds to Racially Insensitive Tweet from MPP Randy Hillier

Doug Black,
Mayor of the Town of Carleton Place


On behalf of Council and the Town of Carleton Place I want to acknowledge the current situation both locally and internationally in regards to racial injustice.

Under absolutely no circumstances will we accept any type of racist or prejudicial behaviour in our community.  I sincerely hope we can all take this opportunity to listen, reflect and ultimately hold ourselves, and those around us accountable for our actions.

This includes our local Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Randy Hillier whose recent racially insensitive tweet is completely unacceptable by any definition and in no way reflects the values of the Town of Carleton Place and its elected officials.

It is up to each and everyone of us to ensure that Carleton Place is a community that holds everyone up to an equal standard and that everyone feels safe and respected.



Doug Black,
Mayor of the Town of Carleton Place
