Canada Day 2016

Happy 149th Birthday Canada! There are so many wonderful events happening to celebrate Canada Day tomorrow.  For me the highlights are, among others, the 3:00 p.m. parade, my favourite band playing at the Cove and of course, the spectacular fireworks at dusk.  Weather will be h – h – h – hot, hazy and humid, so please dress accordingly.

Planning for the Sesquicentennial 150th Birthday for Canada is well under way in the Village for 2017.  It will be a bash!

July 1st is also a change for by-law enforcement in the Village.  During the month of June, our by-law enforcement officer spent time talking to people and educating them about different by-laws.  We also moved forward during June with the Township of Rideau Lakes to contract with the Rideau Lakes Fire Department for Open Air Burning enforcement.

Jenna Barr will be monitoring by-law infractions and Chief Jay Debernardi will be enforcing the Open Air Burning by-law.   For concerns about open air burning, you can contact the Chief at (613) 498-1261 Ext 2504. Here is the link to our by-law on Open Air Burning.     http://villageofwestport.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/by-law-09-01-to-prescribe-the-conditions-under-which-fires-may-be-set-in-open-air1.pdf

Jenna can be contacted through Town Hall at 273-2191 (weekdays) or through her cell phone 613 483 2260.  If she is off duty, messages can be left for her at Town Hall or on her cell phone.  Jenna is not a police officer and for police, fire or medical  emergencies, call 9-1-1.  Other police related matters should go through the regular OPP number – 1-888-310-1122.
Have a great summer everyone.  See you in the ‘Port!!
