Welcome to our blog and web site. Welcome to Ottawa Orleans Canada, a very vibrant, family-oriented and beautiful community along the Ottawa River. We are a growing and green constituency, who think and act locally, nationally and globally. As the saying goes “there is no force stronger for change in a community as when it discovers what it cares about.” This website is designed as a community forum, to discover ourselves and to discover what we care about. We want to hear your views and we enjoy a lively debate. I very much look forward to a respectful dialogue with anyone who shares my values and interests or just wants to debate issues, raise concerns or just ask questions.
Our slogan is WE CARE – AVEC COEUR. I believe in this as I feel it represents hope in a world so beset by suffering and poverty and in our community with such a potential to make a difference. To paraphrase Mother Teresa – We may not all be able to do the great things, but we can always do the small things with great love.
With sincere hopes for the future;
