Ottawa Kanata Beaver Pond Forest Saved Temporarily

A community effort to save the Kanata Beaver Pond has won a measure of success.

Last night Ottawa City Council voted in favour of a motion by Kanata North Councillor Marianne Wilkinson to examine ways of acquiring the land or swapping for it, and also instructed city staff to report on how removing this land from development would affect the water and sewer infrastructure in  the area going forward.

The infrastructure report is expected to be ready in time for the Nov. 24 meeting, at which time there will also be a new council, with elections coming up soon.

There are 4,500+ members on a Facebook group set up to save the wetlands.
