KS – October 12, 2017


Week in Review

Taking responsibility for making our community better is something we do as individuals, as a group of friends or a family, maybe you are a member a sports team or service club, and sometimes it is a street wide effort.

Since becoming your Councillor in 2010, I have been very honoured to join many of you on different projects to improve our community and I believe we have made a difference.  We continue to rank at or near the top every year for being the place where most people want to live and in those seven years we have won the Cleaning Up The Capital award five times!

Over the last two years, along with most of the west end Councillors, I was involved in raising funds for our community hospital – the Queensway Carleton.  We helped raise $2 million for the ACE unit which is Acute Care for the Elderly.  This is a specialized wing dedicated to better care for our senior family members and neighbours that is now open and has been well received.

Last week just before council, I was asked to speak on behalf of ten members of council as we all pledged to help raise $500,000.00 over the next year to upgrade the mental health wing of our hospital.  Most families in our community and across our country have been touched by a mental health issue or know someone impacted.  Some families like mine have suffered immensely from the cost of inadequate care for those facing mental health challenges so to me this is personal as well as a way to help improve our community.

Together with groups like the Kanata Sports Club and others, we will be organizing events to help reach this goal.  I hope you will support our effort and if you can contribute to the Hope Is Rising campaign for our hospital, let me sincerely thank you in advance.
