Tuesday evening, I held an important meeting about safety in Alta Vista at Ste-Geneviève Church. Mayor Watson and I provided remarks, which were followed by presentations by Supt. Joan McKenna of Ottawa Police Services, and Ahmad Luqman of Crime Prevention Ottawa. Questions from the audience were insightful and representative of the community’s concerns.

Neighbourhood Watch, South East Ottawa Community Health Centre, Ottawa Community Housing, Ottawa Bylaw Services, Ottawa Public Health, Somali Centre for Family Services, Options Bytown, Pathway Patrols and Big Brother Big Sisters provided valuable information during the Open House portion of the evening. The evening was attended by about 40 residents.
