This is to service lands being developed by Claridge Homes, Minto and Richcraft Homes, three of the City`s largest developers. Without this sewer extension, these lands could not be developed.

Deal With It Folk Fest: Whopper Watch

Folkies (this is folk?) love the Ottawa Folk Festival. The neighbours? Less so.

Freelancer Chris Lackner in the Citizen last week on the Ottawa Folk Festival. Whopper material:

“The heart of the city is where these fests belong. Be thankful you live in a conservative town with a conservative culture. In most places in the world, there would be no one to complain to – and no such thing as a time curfew. Move to Brazil for a few months. It will put this city’s musical “nightmare” into perspective.”

New Library Likely A Go: Chiarelli – Podcast

Chiarelli

Chiarelli

College Councillor Rick Chiarelli says there is about a 75-per-cent chance that a new main library will be built using a rather innovative funding arrangement and constructing it as a public-private partnership.

The former board chairman of the Ottawa Public Library says a main branch does not have to be as large as one planned in 2006 that never got off the ground. That’s because digital materials have taken over from regular reference books but a new library is still necessary.

Bulldog Backs Monette In Orleans

election endorsementIf ones splits the City of Ottawa in half by population, the division line would roughly be down Woodroffe Avenue.

So that means population in Ottawa is growing westward. Unfortunately Orleans ward is in the east so the population and economic centre of the community is moving farther away.

Monette

Monette

For decades Orleans residents have complained about why there isn’t much industry in the area. The answer is simple: business goes where the population is and Orleans is becoming less inviting as time continues. It’s just a fact of life and to try to fight it is to waste public money. Businesses locate where they want, not because residents wish they were there.

Economic reality is about facts, not dreams.

Still economics matter in Orleans.

Aubin Best Choice In Rideau-Vanier

election endorsementThe Bulldog has great respect for those concerned citizens who toil away in obscurity trying to raise neighbourhood awareness through their community associations.

Aubin

Aubin

Community associations do the hard work that helps improve and preserve neighbourhoods. Some people criticize them for not being representative of their areas. In fact, community association members are some of the few people in a neighbourhood who actually care about issues … at least until something untoward happens next door to the apathetic. Then those people rush to the community association, usually too late.

Marc Aubin comes from a long line of family members who have defended Rideau-Vanier ward. Readers of The Bulldog will recognize his name from his press releases on his own behalf or representing the Lowertown Community Association.
