Ottawa – Ottawa Public Health (OPH) today released its ‘Have Your Say’ survey, and the State of Ottawa Health 2014 report, which will inform its 2015-2018 Strategic Priorities. These priorities will set the strategic direction for the organization for the next four years, guiding decisions about health policies, programs and services.
Alllie, second from the left, was the 50,000th person who parked her bike at RBC Bluesfest - Citizens for Safe Cycling Bike Parking.
Today, Citizens for Safe Cycling and RBC Bluesfest volunteers parked their 50,000th bike since the valet service started in 2006 with a modest 1193 bikes parked. In 2013 the number had grown to 8632 bikes and not one was ever lost. It was Allie Thompson who walked in to drop off her bike at around 5:15 pm on this hot Sunday afternoon, when Charles 'sponteneously' ("O my God, the 50,000th bike") announced that she was the lucky winner of a $500 gift certificate from Kunstadt Sports.

They arrived on the 2nd of July: Ottawa's first bike corrals. The first one went into the Glebe near Joe Mama's, one of Ottawa's bike retailers. The second one was spotted in Hintonburg in front of Hintonburg Public House and Bridgehead, Ottawa local pride in Fair Trade coffee and sponsor of coffee at all our events.
