At MacDonald Gardens Park:
Macdonald Garden's Park clean up happened on Saturday, April 29. Twenty volunteers swept the stairs, raked the leaves, and walked the perimeter finding lost and left belongings that had collected over the winter as well as general refuse. The youngest participant was Ben, age 4. The most unusual find was a trundle bed frame.

We Need a Real Clean Energy Strategy | Nous avons besoin d'une stratégie robuste pour avancer l'énergie propre
Dear Mayor Watson,
In May 2014, the City of Ottawa promised to prepare and adopt a strategy to “advance energy conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy generation” in Ottawa. This strategy is a critical component of our ability to fight climate change, since more than half of Ottawa’s greenhouse gas pollution is associated with how we heat, cool and electrify our homes, offices and other buildings. Three years later, the strategy is still focused on studies and planning, with almost no concrete action in sight. We are calling on you to ensure that the City of Ottawa adopts a real clean energy strategy by the end of 2017 – one that includes meaningful policy change recommendations and significant new investments.
Cher maire Watson,
En mai 2014, la ville d’Ottawa a promis de préparer et d'adopter une stratégie pour promouvoir les économies d’énergie, l’efficacité énergétique et la transition vers des énergies renouvelables à Ottawa. Cette stratégie représente une partie cruciale de notre capacité à combattre le changement climatique, puisque plus de la moitié des gaz à effet de serre générés dans la ville d’Ottawa est causée par la manière dont nous nous chauffons, climatisons et utilisons l’électricité au sein de nos maisons, bureaux et autres édifices. Plus de trois ans plus tard, la stratégie en est encore au niveau de planifications et d’études sans avancer de plans d’action concrets. Nous vous demandons de vous assurer que la ville d’Ottawa adopte une stratégie robuste pour la fin de l’année 2017 – une qui inclue des changements de politiques significatifs et des nouveaux investissements.
