KS – November 10, 2016


Week in Review

I would like to take a moment to thank all members of the Canadian Armed Forces for their service.  Thank you for keeping Canada safe.  We will remember.

Thank you to Taggart Construction for their donation of several large boulders to the playground at Holy Redeemer Elementary School.


Temporary Sidewalk on Hope Sd. Rd.

The temporary sidewalk that has been installed along Hope Side Road (between Eagleson and Crownridge) will be removed as the work on the pathways has been completed and can now be used.  Thank you to Caivan Development Corporation for installing the temporary sidewalk to ensure residents could safely walk between neighbourhoods during construction.


Comedy Show

The Alterna Crackup Comedy Competition is coming back to Kanata this fall. Please join me on Tuesday November 22nd at 7pm at D’Arcy McGee’s Irish Pub (655 Terry Fox Drive) for a hilarious comedy battle.  Ten of Ottawa’s funniest comedians battle it out and YOU get to help us select the three finalists to compete in our Competition Finals on February 7th and 8th, 2016.

Tickets are $10.00 each and can be purchased online at www.crackup.ca, via email at Destini.McLean@ottawa.ca or at D’Arcy McGees.


2017 Cultural Booklet

Councillor Wilkinson has reached out to many arts and cultural groups (music, art, dance and theatre) in the Western Ottawa area of Kanata, Stittsville, West-Carleton-March and Goulbourn to create a booklet listing all local groups in the area.  If you know of any local groups (it can be a community group or one sponsored by a church or school) please email: Marianne.wilkinson@ottawa.ca .


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. Who do you feel makes our community special?  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.

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.
