HYDRO ONE DESTRUCTION – If you live beside the major hydro corridors that

run through Morgan’s Grant, Beaverbrook (Tiffany, Pentland, Lismer etc) and
Village Green you will find that Hydro One wants to stop any trimming of trees and
bushes and instead remove them from the entire easement. I had a meeting with
them over their plans in Morgan’s Grant but have no information on what they plan
elsewhere – but hundreds of trees now are marked that would completely remove
all trees and shrubs from those areas, including places where the easement goes
over individual back yards. Ottawa Hydro will continue to do trimming. These
easements are all on private or City owned lands so I have asked City staff to see
what can be done to protect large landscaped areas from being destroyed. Discuss
this with your neighbours and let me know your views on this and forward your
concerns to Hydro One.

TOWN HALL MEETING JUNE 19 - Thanks to everyone who attended my last
Town Hall. You can still catch it live streamed on my facebook to hear
presentations on Kanata Town Centre Lands; new apartments by Lepine and
Minto’s next Arcadia development. Updates on other developments, including a
new proposal for 1131 Teron Road were also covered. Plan to come to my next
Town Hall in September.

CANADA DAY IN KANATA - Visit my booth at Canada Day in Kanata to speak

OPIOIDS – I ‘m pleased that our firefighters are now trained to administer the
drug life-saving Naloxone to persons with an opioid overdose. With graduations
and end of school parties, it is important to remind your kids about the danger from
street drugs. The Mayor made a major statement at Council last week on moving
forward to deal the drug crisis. Much still needs to be done and we are all part of
the solution.
