Let your backbone slide

Carleton University kicks off a year of events to celebrate its 75th anniversary on Jan. 18 with a performance by Canadian hip-hop artist and former student Maestro Fresh Wes.

Central library crowd

About 200 people attended a meeting at city hall on Jan. 18 to discuss library board staff's recommended site for a new central library at 557 Wellington Street in LeBreton Flats. A quick show of hands showed no one was in favour of the proposed site.


Above, the diagram shows how the current combined sewer system uses sensors to maximize flow to the sewage treatment facility. When there is a bigger storm, overflow runs into the river. Below, the new design would hold the overflow until the event has passed, and then transfer it to the treatment facility.

Iconic spot

According to the National Capital Commission, Nepean Point is one of the most spectacular lookouts in Canada’s Capital, making it a key Capital destination. At the highest point of the site is a majestic statue of Samuel de Champlain, who explored the Ottawa River in 1613.

Hintonburg apartment site plan

The city is receiving comments on the site plan for a five-storey apartment building across from Parkdale Park in Hintonburg.

Peace song
