Gatineau Valley Historical Society 50th

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.

Guess I’m just sensitive to that since my daughter had a head injury this summer (and she was wearing a helmet – it was quite smashed afterward)
