Mr. Moffat with your vote you made the decision - a decision Ottawan’s will have to live with it and look at for years to come. It’s not pretty.

Ottawa Council has voted to allow the iconic Chateau Laurier to build an eyesore downtown . The addition will cast a shadow over the space between the hotel & Parliament Hill . The developer is doing a room disservice to the public . Where is a good concierge when you need one

What an abdication of leadership- no vision - Building an eyesore in the heart of history. We could have done so much better .

What vision - voting to build an eyesore beside the Rideau Canal - a UNESCO World Heritage Site . What an abdication of leadership . We will continue our fight.

Are the Mayor and Councillors hearing the voices of the people of Ottawa who are seeking beauty and harmony of the architecture of the Nations Capital. This is a very important moment for our city.

As a Senator who just happens to live by the Rideau Canal-a World UNESCO Heritage Site ,who lives and breathes Parliament Hill, who works in the new Senate of Canada building just across from the Chateau Laurier, I want to thank Rosie for supporting our fight for what is right.

I am listening to one of my favourite Paul Simons songs . “You Can Call me Al.”...time to lighten up Al- a man walks down the street. Music like this is like a Bridge over Troubled Water. Have a nice summer Al and as Mr. Rae says may you find peace & love.

In politics, it’s never over. I’m urging all Senators and all MP’s to get involved. This is your capital. Think of our history, think of Parliament Hill, think of how the architecture makes it unique. It’s a shared space which must be treated with respect.

In my view , this is a major call for civic engagement and rallying cry for all of us to pick up the phone and call every city councillor and the Mayor. Let’s stand up for what is right .

Pleased to add my voice in support of this new coalition.The Chateau sits next to a UNESCO World Heritage Site-The Rideau Canal. As a Senator who represents this region and who actually lives by the canal and appreciates it’s history ,we must stand up and speak up.

It should be no surprise that and I first connected at the Senate over our mutual love of hockey. He knew and loved that the #12 on my jersey was to honour the great Yvon Cournoyer. My tribute to Senator Demers this afternoon:

My view ,as I bike to work every morning. Look at parliament in the background. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is a masterpiece . Built 1826-32 , It was a reaction to The War of 1812. Hard to imagine that 12 Kilometres of the 206 which stretches to Kingston was built by hand !

40 years ago, a group of men sharing a few cold ones had an idea: they wanted to give back to their communities and make sports accessible for all children. For the ONCSC, generosity goes beyond sports. My statement today recognizes their great work.
