  • Top Priority: Listening to the voices of the residents, business owners and farmers of our villages and rural areas and making their priorities my priorities. I will champion the needs of my ward while working closely with council colleagues to improve the quality of life of all residents of Ottawa. I am hearing from voters in West Carleton-March that their priorities are: transportation and roads; access to services; real representation and consultation. 
  • Hidden gem in your ward:We have so many gems in West Carleton March and one of the most beautiful ones is the Carp Ridge. It is an incredibly scenic drive or bike ride, with breathtaking views over the Carp River valley. And you can stop along the ridge for award-winning wine at Kin Vineyards, where you can sip local wine overlooking acres of rolling vineyards, and visit Harvest Moon Orchard for a large variety of the best locally-grown apples and take home fresh-pressed apple cider and home-made apple pies.
