KS – December 1, 2016


Week in Review

In 2002 and 2009 over 1,200 homes in Ottawa’s west end with Glen Cairn being ground zero, were damaged by flooding and sewer back up due to the insufficient infrastructure system that had been installed years before for a community half the size of Kanata South today.

We developed a plan to fix the issues and with the strong support of Mayor Watson, council approved it and work started immediately in 2011.

I am pleased to announce that the West End Flood Mitigation work is completed – on time and on budget!  We now have a storm water management system that is built to protect your home and keep your families safe for years to come.  Property values are reflecting our confidence in the system and Kanata South is again one of the hottest real estate markets in the city.


OC Transpo’s Fill the Bus

This Saturday December 3rd is OC Transpo’s Annual Food Drive.  Non perishable food donations can be dropped off at Laura’s Your Independent Grocer as well as the Real Canadian Superstore throughout the day.  Food collected will be donated to the Kanata Food Cupboard to help feed those in need this holiday season.


Community Wagon Rides

I am very excited to again be hosting my annual holiday wagon rides to see the Christmas lights around Kanata South.  This year, we have 7 nights of rides leaving from various locations around the ward.  The rides are from 6-8pm and are weather dependent, so in case of inclement weather, please check my Facebook page or website www.councillorallanhubley.ca, for updates.

2017 Project

As a 2017 project I am pleased to invite you to join me in documenting the people, places and activities that make Kanata South a great place to live, work and play.

Please send me your ideas of who you think should be highlighted in our book and why.  If you want to put more than one person forward – please do so as we all know that a community has many people that make it special.

Details regarding this project can be found on my website under the Community tab.


Upcoming Events

December 3rd: The 25th Annual Christmas Cookie walk at the Glen Cairn United Church, 140 Abbeyhill Rd. 9am-noon.  For more information please email office@gcuc.ca.
