Alta Vista Spring Cleaning the Capital

Come join your fellow conservatives as we do our Spring clean-up in our community.

As you know, we’ve adopted a road and clean it twice a year. It’s the Alta Vista stretch between Bank and Pleasant Park.

We’ll meet at 11am on Sunday, April 24 at Cora’s parking lot (2629 Alta Vista Dr.)

As always, we’ll provide the gloves and garbage bags.

Canvass with Dev Balkissoon and Kellie Leitch – Sunday May 26th

Hello Ottawa South Conservatives!

Ottawa South is winnable. Together, we can win this riding, but I’ll need your help. We will require a substantial volunteer base – the larger, the better.

This weekend we are hosting Kellie Leitch, MP for Simcoe-Grey, who has carved out some time from her busy schedule to go door to door in our riding with myself and our team of volunteers. If you are interested in helping us, or getting involved with the campaign, please send us a note.

You can reach us at dev2015os@gmail.com

Thank you for your support!

Dev Balkissoon,
Ottawa South Conservative Candidate
