Over the last months, I have heard from several residents in different areas of the Stittsville community voicing concerns towards the presence of coyotes around their neighbourhoods. As a result, in March, my office, with the assistance of Dr. Nick Stow from the City’s Planning, Infrastructure & Economic Development Department, hosted a meeting to address many of these concerns in the community of Wyldewood.

 

For any residents who may have missed this information session or may still have questions/concerns, I am happy to invite you all to join us for a City Chat at the Stittsville Public Library on June 12th from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Dr. Stow will discuss; the character and importance of Coyotes in maintaining a healthy eco-system, what we can do to as residents to co-exist, along with a number of other important points to consider. After Dr. Stow’s presentation there will be an opportunity to voice any concerns or questions that you may have.

 

If you have questions regarding any other wildlife, I do encourage you to let my office know in advance so that Dr. Stow will be prepared to answer any additional wildlife concerns.

 

There is a limited capacity of 42 people in the Library’s Board room but there are still 30 spaces remaining for this event! I ask that you kindly RSVP in advance of the event should wish to attend the session. It will be on a first come first serve basis. Residents can RSVP by emailing me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca or calling my office at 613-580-2476.
