I was happy to walk this weekend to support the excellent work that the Ottawa Mission does. Thanks again to all the CNOY event volunteers, organizers, and walkers!
Join me and other community leaders as we walk to support the Ottawa Mission this Saturday. Our team is "Everyone Matters" and you can volunteer or donate here.
The Ottawa Mission provides food, shelter, clothing, and life-changing programs to people who are hungry, homeless and lost. Last year they served an average of 1,300 meals each day and provided shelter to 231 people every night.
I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a happy family day weekend!
I was happy to once again sponsor and serve lunch for the Ottawa Mission's clients today. Thanks to the great Mission volunteers and staff who make this a smooth operation every day.

It was a beautiful snowy day on Sunday for the winter carnival - lots of fun events for everyone. Thanks again to the QTN CA for hosting a great event.
I was happy to speak with Evan and Councillor Blais on key City issues including:
- The recent Ottawa Public Library Council vote
- Shelter locations and helping those in need
- Preliminary thoughts on Ottawa as a proposed Sanctuary city
Excellent winter events in Bay Ward this weekend! As always the Carlingwood Winter Carnival and Lakeview Bonspiel were great family events. Thanks to the organizers for the invitations.
In light of the tragedy in Quebec, I accepted the invitation to speak at the Friday sermon. Ottawa is an inclusive city, where we are made stronger by everybody's heritage, beliefs, ideas, and cultures.
I was happy to share a number of awards with our well deserving local athletes. The Ottawa Sports Awards are a great opportunity to honour Ottawa's amateur athletes!
We had a surprise awards presenter, with Olympic athlete Erica Wiebe showing up to present her mom, Paula with an award.
Great community discussions last night at the open house. Excellent to see such engagement.
