I am grateful and proud to be representing the residents of Half Moon Bay in the 2014 Ottawa Municipal Election. Half Moon Bay is one of Barrhaven's Historic areas as many soldiers travelled through that very stretch of land along the Jock River to find their way to the St. Laurence during the 1800's. This area is also known as a Native Canadian trading route. I would like to take this opportunity to assure each and every member of the HMBCA, that if elected to City Council, I will do my best to make you proud, and ensure that your community's quality of life remains second to none. This is my promise to each of you.
Kind Regards, Ian G.Bursey
Candidate. Ward 3 Barrhaven
It is a great honour for me to represent the residents of Half Moon Bay on the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board as your Trustee.
I am very proud of the fact that I have delivered for you on many occasions.
Prior to my election to the Board, secondary students for your community were bussed out of Barrhaven to attend school. I changed that through a motion I crafted and ended up having to pass twice. In addition those students who choose to attend John McCrae Secondary School are now bussed at the expense of the District. I have spoken to many parents who have personally thanked me as they are now saving a significant amount of money not paying for transportation for their kids to get to school.
In September of 2016 a new elementary school will be built in your community that will house 600 students. I fought very hard on many fronts to ensure that this school was listed as the OCDSB's top priority on the capital priorities list that was submitted to the Ministry of Education.
I have appreciated all the support I have received from your community and I look forward to serving you for many years to come and together we will continue to improve the lives of kids and families in Half Moon Bay.
The new Minto Recreation Complex - Barrhaven at the corner of Greenbank and Cambrian Roads will open late this Fall and the city has now opened registration for 2015 programs. Visit ottawa.ca for more information.
