Did you know?……

It’s lovely weather for ducks today 🦆🦆🦆🦆

Did you know?……

Bread has no nutritional value to ducks. In fact, bread can be referred to as junk food for ducks. Ducks may find it tasty, but there is no nutritional benefit for them. They fill up on bread instead of other foods that would be more beneficial to them.

Feeding bread to ducks can also cause ducklings to rely on being supplied the junk food instead of learning how to forage for healthy food themselves.

Finally, bread that isn’t eaten by ducks can also grow into mold and contribute to growth of cyanobacteria and harmful algal blooms.

Healthy options to feed ducks include:
half cut seedless grapes, birdseed, peas, corn, chopped lettuce, oats and cooked rice.

A Message from Town of Carbonear Council

As many are aware, throughout the world, peaceful demonstrations are currently taking place to highlight and increase awareness of systemic racism in our society. At a time when we are in the midst of a global pandemic, it is horrifying and sad to see these examples of systemic racism and violence. Racism doesn’t stop at borders; it exists in every community. We must each do our part to ensure we are engaged in creating a truly welcoming and inclusive community and society.

The Town of Carbonear Council and staff are deeply committed to doing our part to help eradicate all forms of bigotry and racism. We are proud of the work of our community organizations, businesses and residents to embrace different cultures. We were disappointed to cancel our 7th Annual Multiculturalism Week Celebration in March due to the global pandemic. The annual celebration has been an event that strengthens our community, but we recognize there is much more work to be done.

We encourage every resident to listen, support and amplify the message that racism is unacceptable and has no place in our community. We are committed to being a community that promotes tolerance and respect for everyone.

Our Council will remain steadfast to use our collective voice and stand up to help make our community and world a better place. We will keep seeking ways to create a community of equal dignity and respect.

Please Note:

The Town of Carbonear continues to provide essential services during this Public Health Emergency but remain committed to the health and safety of our employees. The Covid-19 situation continues to evolve and the town continues to monitor the situation and make changes to work practices for the safety of our employees.

For the information of the public, staff are working at reduced hours and each work site has two shifts with staff practicing physical distancing to allow for continued provision of essential services.
An example of these measures related to public works staff includes the staff being divided into two shifts reducing the number of staff working on each shift. This also allows each staff person to travel alone in a vehicle, reducing contact between staff. If more than one employee is required to address a task, they have been informed that physical distancing is required for their safety in accordance with provincial and federal government directives.

There may be occasions, when required, where you will see more than one employee at a work site, each in a separate vehicle, but this is in accordance with current practices for the health and safety of our staff during this Public Health Emergency.

The Town would like to thank its staff who are continuing to work to provide essential services to its residents during these very uncertain times when everyone is concerned for their health and safety. We appreciate your dedication and commitment!
