Subject: Petition to Support Effective Speeding Enforcement in Ottawa!
I apologize for the mass email. I’m president of the Dalhousie Community Association (Chinatown/Little Italy), and wanted to highlight a petition tool that we’ve helped launch to encourage councillors to support an upcoming motion at council that would help improve speeding enforcement.
On March 23rd council will consider a motion by Councillor Brockington (seconded by Councillor El-Chantiry, chair of the Ottawa Police Board) that would see the city officially ask the provincial government for the ability to deploy photo radar, or other technologies, as an additional tool for enforcing speed limits.
To support this an email-your-councillor tool has been set up at http://safestreetsottawa.ca/. It lets individuals select their councillor and send a short note indicating their support for the motion. Our hope is to provide grassroots support for those councillors already planning to support the cause, and a bit of a nudge for those on the fence or that might currently be opposed.
If you are interested, we’d appreciate if you could forward the site you your members and through social media channels to help drive participation. We’ve had a good response so far, and our hope is that we can get great representation from all wards.
Thanks for your support,
President, Dalhousie Community Association
