KS – December 29, 2016


Week in Review

Thank you to St. James School for inviting me in to see their Christmas concert last week.  I really enjoyed watching the great performances!


New Year’s Eve

With special 2017 New Year’s Eve Celebrations happening on December 31, the free city-wide bus service normally offered will start earlier this year to encourage families to take part in the festivities.

OC Transpo, in partnership with MADD Ottawa, the City’s Safer Roads Ottawa program and other partners, will start its free bus and Para Transpo service at 4:30 p.m. which will continue to 3am.

Para Transpo will be operating a holiday schedule on New Year’s Eve. Regular scheduled trips will be automatically cancelled, but customers can book trips by calling 613-244-7272 on or after December 25.

Recognizing Community Leaders

Along with our seven indoor rinks and 15 outdoor rinks, Kanata South is the only community with two of what we call ‘Super Rinks’.  These large rinks are close to NHL size and allow many more users than the traditional puddle rink.  Recently council approved naming the rink on Cope Road at Kristina Kiss park, the Chris Phillips Rink and also approved the naming of our newest rink located on Meadowbreeze Dr. in Monahan Landing, the Chris Neil Rink in recognition of all their charity work in our community.  This winter we will be organizing a special day to celebrate both these commemorative naming for the whole community to enjoy.  Details to follow on my website.


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 great.

We will gather all your responses and compile them into a memory book available to everyone and placed in the Library for future generations to have a snapshot of what made Kanata South special in 2017.

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


Upcoming Events

December 31st: Kick off to 2017!  This early evening, family-friendly celebration, which will include the lighting of a spectacular cauldron will begin at 6pm at Ottawa City Hall.

If you have an upcoming event that you would like promoted here, please send it to allan.hubley@ottawa.ca
