To Mayor, Council, and the Residents of 100 Mile House.

Please accept this letter as my formal letter of Resignation from my position of Councillor and all related committees and duties.

The “unhealthy health” cycle consisting of COVID-19, the Flu, respiratory issues, etc. of the past two years has caught up with me and I have just been released from eight days in hospital with various health matters being investigated.

I realize that I have just over two and a half years left in this, my sixth term of office, but I also know my current health issues have been very taxing and that there are no guarantees that the state of my health could not act up again.

My time in the community and on Council has been a tremendous experience of learning, loving, caring, and giving for me. The expression “I love 100 Mile House” has come to have true meaning and experience! This is why I choose to live, work, and play here!

Thank you for your understanding, with love and respect.

Ralph Fossum

100 Mile House
