I hope everyone had a safe and fun March Break and St. Patrick’s Day. Although both annual events are a sign of the warm weather of Spring drawing close, they are also a warning that the Spring melting season is near. I would like to ask all residents to help city crews to keep the catch basins clear on their street. Any blockage created by ice or debris leaves melted snow with nowhere to flow, and can cause mild flooding. If we all work together, we can ensure your streets remain clear, and avoid any unnecessary water build-up.
I would like to remind drivers to exercise caution when using the roundabout in Kanata. For a full explanation on how to use a roundabout, as well as helpful vehicle safety tips like “Who has the right of way?” please visit my website and look under the infrastructure tab on www.councillorallanhubley.ca

Week in Review:
I hope you had the opportunity to take-in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 16. I had fun joining my City Council colleagues on the City of Ottawa float.
On March 18, I spoke to physicians and staff at CHEO as part of the roll-out for their refreshed mission, vision, and strategic direction for the upcoming three years. This was a good reminder of the important work of this world class institution in our community.
This week I attended the Annual General Meeting for the Kanata Food Cupboard, which was held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church. I have always been a strong supporter of the crucial service they provide to those in our community in need. To find out how you can donate or volunteer, please visit kanatafoodcupboard.ca
April 6, 2013 – Community Breakfast: I will be hosting a community breakfast at Don Cherry’s Bar and Grill featuring celebrated journalist and Sun TV personality Brian Lilley as a guest speaker. The cost will be $15.00 per person with all net proceeds being donated to the Kanata Food Cupboard. The breakfast will go from 9:00-11:00am with tickets available at the door. I hope to get a chance at the breakfast to talk to you about the issues that concern you and your family.
