Thank you to all the volunteers who make our Kanata South Christmas parade such a great annual event. Thank you to the residents from all over that come out to view the parade and an extra special thanks to the resident on Castlefrank who has homemade cookies for us every year!

Thanks to Mayor Watson, Councillors Wilkinson, El-Chantriy, Qadri and his wife as representatives of Council for joining the parade this year.   I am honoured to be part of the City of Ottawa council and I have also enjoyed walking the parade for last ten years. I appreciate the opportunity to give treat bags to kids along the route and to say thanks to as many people as possible for the amazing privilege of representing our community.

I would also like to thank Cindy Cutts and her Proud to be Me Team for helping to organize our first Proud to be Me Parent Information Night.  This event was a great success with Dr. Maggie Mamen joining us for an informative presentation.  Thank you to all who attended and all the volunteers from various resource groups who were on hand to share valuable information with parents.


Thank you Cindy for putting together this amazing event.

Monahan Drain Update

As you are most aware the Monahan Upgrade Project started last fall in 2014, and I wanted to take the opportunity to provide you with an update. The Project is proceeding according to budget and schedule and is expected to be complete in the Spring of 2017. The large black bags on-site contain sediment and organic material from the bottom of the stormwater facility. These bags will be covered with soil and the area will be landscaped after the bags have sufficiently dewatered. The fine/organic material was unable to be excavated using traditional excavation equipment.

The development of the Monahan Landing subdivision didn’t affect public access to the stormwater management facility. The upgrade works began the fall of 2014, and works in 2015 have included earth moving, in-water dredging, installation of pipes, installation of new culvert at Hope Side Road and rough grading. Work scheduled in 2016 will include all landscaping consisting of in-water plantings, trees, shrubs, fences and pathway improvements. To ensure public safety, pathway closures will be in effect throughout the period of active construction, which is expected to be complete in 2017.
