KS – May 11, 2017


Week in Review

The recent rainfall has been a very good test of our storm water management system and I personally will be thanking the people involved in getting the necessary work done to protect your homes.  Residents of Kanata know what it is like to recover from flooding so we can all sympathize with the property owners across the city that are experiencing what our community has (in some cases three times) in the past.

I travelled around the community all weekend checking what used to be our weak spots in the system and was impressed with how well the water flowed the way it was supposed to.

As part of the Lions 40th anniversary celebration this past weekend, they were showing pictures of past weather events including 2009 when the field, parking lot and building was filling up with water.  This weekend was a different picture and for that I am very thankful.  Please consider offering assistance to our flooded communities across the city in their time of need and share what we learned the hard way – how to protect your home and belongings during major storms.


Lions 40th Anniversary

The Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club is celebrating their 40 years of service this year.  Congratulations and thank you for your many contributions to our community.
