Editor’s Letter: Leaves and writs are dropping

By Maureen McEwan

Dear readers, 

I hope this letter finds you all very well.

Happy fall! If you’re like me, autumn might be one of your favourite seasons in Ottawa, mostly because it signals an end to the heat waves.

We’re also in a political season. On Sept. 20, Canadians are heading to the polls for the 44th federal election, following the writ drop in August. 

We’ve got some political stories lined up in the September edition and a good mix of other news topics.

On the political front, we’ve got an Ottawa Centre federal election candidates roundup and an exit interview with MP Catherine McKenna. On the business front, Revelle Bridal Boutique has moved to Westboro, and we caught up with owner Earleen Garbe to learn more. 

In arts, we’ve got an article from the West End Studio Tour team on the 26th annual fall tour.  And in sports, we caught up with local Michael Tayler on his third Olympic run and retirement. 

In this month’s Giving section, we hear about the 25th annual Feast of Fields culinary event and fundraiser. 

Early Days explores the history of Holland Avenue and the brothers it is named for: Andrew and George Holland.

Dr. Kwadwo Kyeremanteng, an ICU and palliative care doctor, took the time to speak with us for this month’s Humans of Kitchissippi feature.

And then we’ve got two special sections for September: Kitchissippi Homes and Taste of Wellington! 

And that’s all the news that’s fit to print. 

Stay safe, Kitchissippi, and remember to exercise your democratic rights this month.
