Michelle’s Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer

On December 13th Michelle lost her fight to her long hard battle. She fought 5 long hard and rough months, but in the end her body just could not fight this horrible disease. Michelle left with great strength, dignity and grace. She will be remembered by so many. She was a beautiful mother, daughter, partner, sister, cousin, niece and friend. She could light up any room with her beautiful smile and loving heart.

To show your support and love for the family or to share a memory of Michelle please follow this link:

At the time of publication, the monies set aside in the City Budget were for planning and not actual construction work. The following Ottawa Citizen Blog explains the confusion;
