Our Pottery Technician

Jocelyn Jenkins is the studio technician here at the Firehall and also teaches a variety of classes and camps with OSCA. She is a fixture at the Firehall Pottery Studio where she has shared her love of clay with people of all ages for many years. Jocelyn creates whimsical projects that challenge her classes to pour themselves into their work. Jocelyn is also a functional potter whose work can be seen several times a year in shows and sales in the area. Through her work she attempts to forge a connection with her audience.  

Save the Local Planning Appeal Support Centre

Ottawa residents are organizing to save a government agency set up to help citizens fight big developers at the Ontario Municipal Board.

The Ontario government set up the Local Planning Appeal Support Centre in 2018 to help residents navigate bureaucracy and legislation involved in appealing municipal zoning decisions at the Ontario Municipal Board.
In its nine month existence, it handled 570 requests from 168 different communities about zoning appeal issues.
Then, on February 21, without fanfare or even a formal announcement, Ontario Attorney General Caroline Mulroney told the centre’s director that she and her staff were being let go.
“This action dealt a blow to citizens across the province who may not be able to exercise their rights effectively without the advice [the centre was] set up to provide,” said Paul Johanis, chair of the Greenspace Alliance of Canada’s Capital.
The Greenspace Alliance has set up an online petition to urge the Attorney General to reinstate the centre’s staff and keep the LPA Support Centre open.
