Week in Review

Program Room named after local Senior

I was my pleasure this past week to join a resident of Kanata South and long time friend of mine, Owen Prince to visit the Program room at the Kanata Senior’s Centre that has been renamed the Owen Prince Room.  In the 1990’s Owen lead the effort in the lobbying of the Kanata City Council for a Kanata Seniors Centre and was key to not just raise the funds needed to ensure the Kanata Seniors Centre would be built, but his team exceeded their targets. Owen and his lovely wife Connie have been active members of the Kanata Seniors Centre for all these years and it was felt that naming the Program Room at the Seniors Centre would be the perfect way to honour him. Congratulations Owen!

Cracking up the Capital

This year’s Cracking up the Capital Comedy Festival will be taking place from February 1st-7th at various locations around the city and I am happy to be back again this year as the Festival’s Honorary Chair.  The Festival raises awareness for mental health initiatives in Ottawa.  This year they have added a new event and are attempting to break the Guinness World Record for most snowmen built in an hour! Be a part of history and help them raise funds for local mental health charities and community groups.

  • When: Sunday, February 1st
  • Where: TD Place Stadium
  • Registration: 10:00 a.m.
  • Record Attempt: 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Post-event reception: 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Bring your gently used mittens, scarves and hats to decorate your snowmen. They will be donating them to the Salvation Army to help those in need in our community!
