Tonight the GVHS is celebrating 50 years of existence with a party at Camp Fortune. I was invited to give a short presentation on the history of Camp Fortune but found myself with a scheduling conflict so prepared this short video which the GVHS is planning to screen.
Once again I apologize for my lack of frequent postings at GuideGatineau and point you to some of the other work I’m doing. This should be of particular interest to Ottawa residents because it relates to what your city council is doing (or not doing).
At this time some city councillors are trying to suppress information on how the city is missing it’s targets for greenhouse gas reduction, and worse want no part in planning how to do better in future.
If you live in Ottawa please tell the mayor and your city councillor to include two things in the next round of buget planning: (a) an over-arching climate change action plan; and (b) five short term initiatives identified by city staff as having the largest greenhouse gas emission reduction impacts.
France Rivet and Shelley Ball were good enough to spend time with me discussing the photographs on display at the Gatineau Park Visitors’ Centre this summer. Click on the image at right to see the promo poster and listen to them talk about the exhibit in this four minute video.
GuideGatineau previously listed upcoming events linked to a Google calendar. I found it onerous to maintain though and combined with technical difficulties that lead me to hide it away. If however, some sweet volunteer wanted to take on the task of keeping a Google calendar up to date, I'd be only too happy to bring it back. If you're that magnificent volunteer please send me an email.
