On Saturday July 21, 2018 OSCA welcomed twelve young volunteers (14-18 years) from Canada's CISV (Children's International Summer Villages) to Old Ottawa South. These young adults (along with two senior volunteers plus a dedicated & experienced driver) travelled in their very own Peace Bus from Victoria across Canada, promoting just and peaceful societies through education, learning, and volunteerism.

Recent articles have drawn attention to the unattractive trees and gardens on Bank Street in Old Ottawa South and have raised the question — whose job is it to remedy this situation?
The Old Ottawa South Traffic and Safety Committee, chaired by Winnie Pietrykowski, has also asked that question. The Traffic Committee, in addition to following up on the OOS Traffic Survey with the City officials and sitting on the Lansdowne Traffic Monitoring Operations Committee (LTMOC) has acted on the notion that greener streets can play a role in encouraging more respectful and safe driving by those passing through our community. In this regard, a member of the Traffic Committee has become engaged with the Sunnyside Avenue Traffic Calming and Green Streets Project.
