Week in Review
Last week I was asked on CFRA why I was troubled by people protesting the work the city is doing to prevent raw sewage from getting into our rivers. This work involves digging a hole in a park in Rideau Rockcliffe and tunneling underground to install large diversion tanks.
My response was that our community lived through massive construction that impacted not just a park but your day to day lives and what I heard over and over from residents of Kanata South was thank you for fixing the sewers. I told the host and CFRA listeners how very proud I was of our community for enduring those years of work so to have someone demanding we ask taxpayers to spend extra millions to move the entrance to a park in a less fortunate neighbourhood like Vanier, was to me, shameful.
Thank you to the organizers of the Young’s Pond Broomball Tournament and Winter Carnival for all their hard work organizing this great community event! If you have an event that you would like me to share with the community, please send me the details to Allan.Hubley@Ottawa.ca .
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.
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.
