Dropping the puck for the Condors Vs Blazers Game with Kelli Burke (President of the KMHA), Sean Brennan(Head coach Maj PW AA Blazers), and Coun. Hubley with player on the left Blazers Captain Liam Markhauserand Player on the right Condors Captain Chris Drake

Thank you to the Capital City Condors who welcomed me behind their bench, as an honouray coach during the Condors Challenge last Saturday.

The match was a friendly game versus the Kanata Blazers at the Bell Sensplex and the most touching part was to see the Blazers hold their sticks high as the Condors skated under off the ice.

The Condors are a special needs hockey team that features youth starting from age six who are ineligible to play on any other hockey team in the City of Ottawa due to a disability.

The team is now in its fourth year and was started by Jim Perkins, who was named the Citizen of the Year at the Kanata Chamber of Commerce awards last week, for his hard work and dedication to the team.

I want to thank the Kanata Minor Hockey Association, the Kanata Food Cupboard, the Condors and all of the volunteers involved in this game for making it a huge success.

I want to thank the more than 70 community members who attended my first-ever Meet and Greet Breakfast last Saturday. The event raised more than $500 for the Kanata Food Cupboard; I want to thank everyone for supporting this vital resource in our community.
