O-Train Energized to Tunney’s Pasture

Subject: Overhead Catenary System – Electrification

[…]

Please be advised that OLRTC has begun with the electrification of segment 1 of the Confederation Line (Tunney’s to West Portal). This is exciting for the project and your ward but it is also important to remember that this is also a new danger that people need to be made aware of. To that end, I am attaching a bilingual education poster for you to share with your community association and neighbours. I will also be sharing this poster with the local schools.

Quarterly Ward Forum – April 30

From our city councillor Jeff Leiper’s newsletter #135:

April ward forum

Team Kitchissippi and I will be hosting our last ward forum of this term of Council on April 30. It’s scheduled for 6-8 at the field house at Van Lang (29 Van Lang Pvt.) We’ll have all the usual updates from community groups and BIAs. I’m thrilled that our guest speaker this time will be John Manconi, GM of Transportation at the city. It should be a good one.

Hazardous and Electronic Waste Depots

The dates for the Tunney’s Pasture hazardous waste depots are now known, Sunday, May 6 2018 and Sunday, September 16 2018. See the city web site https://ottawa.ca/en/residents/garbage-and-recycling/hazardous-waste-and-special-items for a list of the items that are considered too hazardous for regular garbage (things like mercury filled fluorescent light bulbs).

If you have electronic waste (old computers, TVs and other equipment) or fabrics you want to get rid of, Connaught Public School (Rosemount and Gladstone) http://connaughtschoolyardrenewal.ca/ (oddly not listing their own event for this year, though it is listed in http://www.recycleyourelectronics.ca/) is taking them to help raise funds for school yard improvements. Electronics and textile recycling on Friday April 20 from 7:45 to 8:30 am and Saturday, April 21 from 8 am to 1 pm.

The city also has a list of other e-waste events. I see there is one nearby at Dovercourt on Saturday, April 14 2018, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
