Celebrating our Volunteers - May Column

Dear neighbours,

First, I'd like to take a moment to thank the incredible efforts of all our volunteers who helped out with the ongoing flooding efforts. There is still lots to do for affected homeowners with the cleanup efforts, and I know our superb volunteers will keep up the great work. 

It was an honour to present the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers with Her Excellency Sharon Johnston and Mayor Watson to our hardworking Bay Ward residents: Ms. Anna Bevilacqua, Mr. Maurice Charlebois, and Ms. Carmela Graziani. Thanks for all the great work you do!


This month we also held public consultations on continuing to improve Stage 2 LRT plans for the community and move the project forward. The public feedback was very thoughtful and I greatly appreciate the community involvement of all those who have participated in the process. Please continue to reach out to my office if you have any questions or concerns.

Upcoming events

On Saturday, June 3rd thousands of families will be participating in the biggest lemonade stand fundraiser in Canada. Funds will go toward cancer research and clinical trials and be invested in providing cancer coaching to families who are facing cancer. Consider setting up a stand of your own or just visiting one to buy some lemonade! More details can be found here www.ottawacancer.ca 

I wanted to wish residents a Happy Mother’s day on May 14th – be sure to tell your mom how much you appreciate her.  I also wanted to wish those who celebrate Ramadan a blessed and peaceful start of Ramadan on May 27th.   

Let’s keep our roads safe for all residents – please reach out to my office if you’d like one of these nice “slow down for us” signs.  


You can always find more details about upcoming events and activities in Bay Ward and across Ottawa by following me on Twitter and Facebook or by subscribing to updates at www.BayWardLive.ca. Should you ever need the assistance of my team please do not hesitate to reach out. We are happy to help. 

Best wishes this spring and please keep in touch!
