CONGRATULATIONS JENNA for being elected as Councillor for Kanata

North for the term 2018-2022. I know our community will be well
represented by Jenna as I’ve seen her in action with the Kanata Food
Cupboard and the Kanata North Business Association. Congratulations also
to all of the other successful candidates. For the three incumbents who lost,
something that happened to me in the past, take time to recover and then
move forward to new challenges and opportunities. I’m particularly pleased
that we again have 7 very capable women on Council, back to the number in
2006 when I returned to municipal governance. I’ll be going over issues
with Jenna during the transition stage so that she can immediately deal with
local matters on December 1st.

CITY COUNCIL – I’m in office until November 30th so until then send me
your inquiries and issues. Jenna will do a great job to help you when she
arrives on December 1st, so at that time you can reach her at City Hall.

SAVE THE DATE - NOVEMBER 27, 7PM, KANATA NORTH TOWN HALL,
Beaverbrook Library Halls A & B - This will be my final Town Hall as your
Councillor so, as well as dealing with any new issue, I will provide you with a
wrap up of all issues underway. I will present a chart of known
developments underway or projected to provide an understanding to you
and Jenna on what is happening in our area. I will have an informal get-
together at the end with refreshments as I pass the torch to Jenna. The
meeting portion will also be available on Facebook Live.

DEDICATIONS – I am honored two of my last events will be to dedicate the
Susan Finch Room on October 30th at 3 pm in the Mlacak Center and Bill
Teron Park (formerly Kanata Town Center Park) on November 9 at 3 pm. I
am proposing to name the Arboretum at the Beaver Pond the Mario Poirier
Arboretum. Mario worked with City staff to create it.

KANATA FOOD CUPBOARD – The Kanata Food Cupboard is preparing for
the Christmas Season. Families and organizations are needed to sponsor a
family this year. If you are interested, go to www.kanatafoodcupboard.ca/
for information on sponsorship.

MARIANNE’S MOVING ON GALA NOVEMBER 20 – SOME TICKETS ARE
STILL AVAILABLE – Join others from the community to ‘celebrate’ my 50
years of community service as both a community builder and politician. I am
told there will be some special guests in attendance and I am apt to be
roasted as well. Funds raised are going to create a Health Hub for much
needed medical services. Contact my office if you or your business can
donate to the Silent Auction. Email kanatanorth@ottawa.ca for information
about Sponsorships and Corporate Tables. Individual tickets ($150 with
partial tax receipt) can be obtained on Eventbrite or by cheque to my office.
Details are on my website.
