What Ottawa is Talking About – 21 March 2022

21 March 2022

▪️Front desk services reopen at two Ottawa Police stations. Elgin Street and St Joseph Boulevard are both open 8 am to 6 pm, seven days per week, for walk ins. The Queensview location will remain appointment only. All three locations had gone appointment only at the beginning of the pandemic. [Ottawa Citizen]

▪️Gatineau is taking a page from Ottawa by proposing a new hospital in an unsuitable location. The Quebéc government killed the proposal to build the new hospital in downtown Gatineau in favour of a more rural location. Chelsea is worried about the increase of traffic in its area, others are concerned that it creates sprawl, with no transit to the area for patients or staff. [CBC]

▪️You come to a fork in the road. Take it. Frankville – you know, it's between Toledo and Lehighs Corners – lost their largest piece of art, a three metre tall scultpture of a fork at the Y of Kitley Line 8 Road and Leacock Road. Suspiciously, the fork was bent back last week in what know appears to be an aborted attempt to steal it. Police are asking people to watch out for anyone eating a salad with a giant utensil. [CBC
