KS – November 9, 2017


Week in Review


Community Safety Awards

I would like to congratulate Holy Trinity student Sarah Becker on being the 2017 Youth Award Recipient at this year’s Crime Prevention Ottawa’s Community Safety Awards!  Sarah has invented a solar powered reflective backpack that alerts motorists when a cyclist is turning at night time, by flashing turn signals on the backpack.  I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah a few years ago when she was a grade 8 student at the Investigate! Innovate! Invent! Showcase that displayed hundreds of innovative ideas created by our students and was very impressed with Sarah’s complex design!  Congratulations again Sarah!

I would also like to congratulate Kanata South Crossing Guard Caroline Cross who has been a School Crossing Guard for many years in the ward.  Caroline was nominated and finished as a finalist for the Crime Prevention Safety Awards. Thank you to Caroline and the many other Crossing Guards in Kanata South for helping to keep our children safe on their way to and from school.


Hewitt Park Pathway

The rehabilitation work along the Hewitt Park multi-use pathway, from Pickford to Pickford, has begun and work is expected to continue until mid November (weather permitting). While the work is ongoing the pathway may be closed off to the public at certain times.  Up to date information can be found on my website at www.CouncillorAllanHubley.ca .
