For the eighth day, the remaining homes without power will be powered up by tomorrow. About 8,000 homes are still without power after last week’s storm.
The City is converting some of the emergency centres into Community Support Centres. Each centre will have representatives from:
- By-law and Regulatory Services
- Ottawa Public Health
- Community and Social Services
- Building Code Services
- Canadian Red Cross
- Insurance Bureau of Canada
Besides information related to general insurance, housing and financial services, building and demolition permit requirements and processes, public health, and psychosocial support, each location has charging stations for electronic devices, showers, and washrooms.
The locations are:
- CARDELREC Recreation Complex Goulbourn (1500 Shea Road)
- François Dupuis Recreation Complex (2263 Portobello Boulevard)
- Howard Darwin Centennial Arena (1765 Merivale Road)
- Hunt Club-Riverside Park Community Centre (3320 Paul Anka Drive)
The Howard Darwin Centennial Arena and Hunt Club-Riverside Park Community Centre also has food until tomorrow evening.
▪️Starting today you can get the full schedule of Doors Open Ottawa, the celebration of Ottawa’s heritage architecture unfolding on June 4th and 5th. You’ll have to register to access some of the buildings, and some are participating via virtual tours only, but otherwise you can walk in during the event’s hours.
▪️OrKidstra returns with a free live event featuring over 100 young musicians, on Wednesday (June 1st) at the Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre, 355 Cooper Street. Donations are welcome.
▪️Small Pony Barrel Works has launched A Lonely Forest 2022, a “spontaneously fermented” golden sour wheat beer promising a note of browned apple and a very slight bitterness. Sounds lovely for a picnic.
