“Actively involved in the Board’s committees, I have in the last two years acquired significant experience that will allow me to be more engaged in important Ottawa Police files such as the Gender and Diversity Audits,” stated Member Valiquet. “I am honoured to have been re-appointed for another 3-year term to serve the residents of our City.”
