We mentioned these on Friday, but it is worth mentioning again since there is so very little that any of us can do. Here are three ways to support the people in Ukraine:
🔵 The Canadian Red Cross appeal for the Ukraine. Money sent to the Canadian Red Cross is guaranteed get to the on-the-scene Red Cross and Red Crescent societies.
🔵 Médecins Sans Frontières. MSF has doctors and medical aid on the ground in Ukraine. This is the Canadian donation link.
🔵 The Kyiv Independent and the New Voice of Ukraine are English language local journalists fighting to keep the world updated. The Kyiv Independent is on Patreonand GoFundMe. The New Voice of Ukraine is on Patreon.
Here are two new podcasts that bring to life some Ottawa issues. Neither is full of new information for people who are following the saga of former Police Chief Peter Sloly or the decision to locate the new Civic Hospital at Dow's Lake, but both are sum up the issues well.
▪️Questioning Peter Sloly This Canadaland production looks at accusations that Sloly had a harassment complaint against him when he worked for Toronto Police, and his later troubles dealing with the Ottawa Police rank and file.
▪️Dr Walter Hendelman On The Civic Hospital This Fulcrum Radio Show discusses the decisionmaking over the hospital, Lansdowne and the LRT.
▪️NYNY Salon is extending its Caribbean Days until March 12th. When you visit for your hair appointment you’ll be greeted by beach holiday music, good vibes, complimentary drinks, and specials like $45 blowouts. 3625 Rivergate Way
▪️If EVOO* is a staple in your pantry, Aurelius Fine Oils and Balsamics has a deal for you. They’re currently taking email addresses for their 2020 Early Harvest clearance sale list. Quite simply, they’ve got too much stock and since this harvest will be priced attractively, it makes sense to plan for a virtual or irl shopping trip (*extra virgin olive oil).
▪️There’s a new nut free donut in town. Available Saturdays only at the Piggy Market, choose from Maple, Boston Cream, Lemon, Strawberry Cheesecake, Apple Dule de Leche, and Old Fashioned Glazed.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
