Week in Review
I have heard from many residents this past week regarding having Ottawa become a Sanctuary City. There have been very few details regarding this motion circulated prior to Council so I am writing this prior to seeing what will actually be submit at Wednesday’s meeting, however, based on statements to date, I will not be supporting a motion that is intended to give away your hard earned tax dollars to anyone who asks.
The notion of free bus service, health care, welfare, housing and even the right to vote for anyone who asks without proof of citizenship or the current basic qualifications shows just how little respect some Councillors have for the good people of Ottawa.
I will not support this effort nor will I stop respecting your tax dollars as I feel it is a privilege to serve as your Councillor.
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.
