It almost didn’t happen. El Niño and climate change, like two bullies in the school yard – or in Question Period – nearly spoiled the fun for all. But then, just in time, a temperature dip made the outdoor ice conditions perfect for the 9th annual Capital Ward Cup on Saturday, January 30th 2016, before the thermostat bounced back up in what should be prime outdoor skating season.
The Old Ottawa South Moose were up to the challenge, capturing their second consecutive victory in the four-on-four shinny tournament played by four teams in Capital Ward: the Moose, Heron Park Hackers, Old Ottawa East Hosers, and Glebe Goal-Getters. In a breathtaking end to end final, the Moose overcame the surging Hosers to win 12-7.

The City of Ottawa has released a zoning proposal to revise minimum parking standards, that is, the number of automobile parking spaces that must be included with new developments.
Visit the study webpage to review discussion papers explaining the drawbacks of the existing standards, which limit the viability of small businesses, hinder urban redevelopment, increase costs, and cause traffic. View the video with background info here. The proposed changes for small-scale developments on main streets and in urban areas like Old Ottawa South offer a new approach to promoting compact development that aligns with the City’s growth objectives.
