Cumberland Councillor Stephen Blais alongside Mayor Jim Watson celebrated the groundbreaking of what will be the newest fire station in Ottawa, Station 55.
“This is a big win for the Orléans community,” says Councillor Blais. “We have had huge growth in the past few years, and soon it will become difficult for the Ottawa Fire Service to keep up. Having a station like this in the heart of the neighbourhood will surely bring peace of mind to Cumberland Ward residents”.
Cumberland City Councillor Stephen Blais is proud to announce the awarding of two grants to celebrate Canada150 in rural Cumberland.
“The 2017 Civic Events Funding Program is a great way to ensure that villages such as Navan are able to celebrate the Canada’s biggest anniversary in the same spectacular fashion that other Ottawans do on Parliament Hill,” says Blais. “It is great to see that rural areas are getting the support they deserve to organize an unforgettable Canada Day.”
Cumberland City Councillor and amateur sports champion Stephen Blais is donating $2,000 to the Capital Xelles Basketball club, a competitive basketball team based in Orléans, to pay for operating costs such as new uniforms, basketballs, and gymnasium rentals.
“I am proud to contribute to programs like the Capital Xelles, which help athletes reach their full potential in academics and athletics,” says Councillor Stephen Blais. “Building strong fundamentals in the community and in school are key in creating tomorrow’s top athletes.”
