Stephen Blais is proud to announce that students will be able to cross local roads more safely this school year. Blais was able to secure the funding to add three new locations in Cumberland Ward.
Local recreation and road safety champion Cumberland Ward Councillor Stephen Blais helped active Cumberland Ward’s first signalized pedestrian crossover on Valin Street, between Winsome Terrace and Demeter Street.
City Councillor and anti-speeding champion Stephen Blais continues new initiatives to help combat speeding throughout the Orléans and Cumberland area.
“Our new Speed Display Boards are another new community benefit that may help save a life,” says Councillor Blais. “Some motorists need to be reminded to slow down and these speed boards drive the point across.”
Cumberland City Councillor Stephen Blais is calling on the Ontario government to allow for cameras that would photograph the license plates of motorists who ignore flashing school bus lights when picking-up or dropping-off children. The recorded data would automatically be transmitted to the appropriate enforcement agency for recourse and is similar to a red light camera.
In my first “back to school” time as a City Councillor, I would like to wish every child a warm and safe return to school. Moreover, it is imperative that I take this opportunity to remind everyone about some key areas of interest during this time of year.
More importantly than any of these reasons however, our children finally leave the classroom for outdoor activities after a long school year. For more information on outdoor summertime fun in Ottawa please visit: http://bit.ly/ottawasummer.
The number is 819-771-2886.
“We don’t want to see any resident of Ottawa and Gatineau driving while inebriated. Please keep this number handy this holiday season”, said Mr. Blais. “If you think you had too much to drink, be responsible and call Red Nose, it may be the best decision you ever made”, added the councillor.
