VP, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions-Pub­lic Af­fairs, Ot­tawa Air­port Ot­tawa has been called a big city with a home­town feel. Do you agree? Agree! Ot­tawa is “big city” enough to have new ar­eas to ex­plore and an ever-grow­ing en­ter­tain­ment, arts and cul­ture scene. But it’s not un­com­mon to go out for din­ner, and run into friends. You never know what will hap­pen on a Satur­day night…a quiet din­ner for two can turn into a party! What land­mark or event do you think re­flects Ot­tawa best? Par­lia­ment Hill is ob­vi­ous, yet there are many other land­marks that de­fine the city. The Fair­mont Chateau Lau­rier, the Rideau Canal, mu­se­ums - many beau­ti­ful, rec­og­niz­able struc­tures that strike a chord with peo­ple ev­ery­where, and shout Ot­tawa. Where do you take vis­i­tors when they come to town? Most of my vis­i­tors come to one of my fa­vorite places by de­fault…the beau­ti­ful Ot­tawa In­ter­na­tional Air­port! Aside from that I would take a stroll through the By­Ward Mar­ket, fol­lowed by a drive through Gatineau Park to Wake­field, topped-off by lunch or din­ner at the his­toric Wake­field­Mill Inn. Forced to choose, what would be your favourite time of year in Ot­tawa? I love late June; flow­ers are start­ing to bloom, grass is green, res­tau­rant pa­tios are full, mar­kets are over­flow­ing with fresh pro­duce and Blues­fest is just around the corner. De­scribe this city in one sen­tence. Ot­tawa is a safe, beau­ti­ful, world-class city that I’m proud to call my home­town.
