What a storm on Sunday! The weather gods were sure angry. Bells Corners didn’t escape unscathed either – this tree in the councillor’s neighbourhood paid the price for the gods’ anger at City Council’s nose-holding vote on the renaming fiasco.
I wonder if first responders got there in time – some of them must not have GPS and could be confused with Hadley Circle and Hadley Court side by side. Maybe one of them could be renamed for a Liberal senator.
Meanwhile, a $75,000 fire raged across the street and seven people are homeless. Apparently first responders had absolutely no problem location the burning condo.
Seven homeless after Bells Corners fire

“The Ottawa Fire Service is investigating the cause of an early Monday morning fire in Bells Corners that left seven people homeless, said fire department spokesman Marc Messier.
Firefighters said the blaze in a two-storey unit at 424 Moodie Dr. was unrelated to the severe thunderstorms overnight.
Firefighters received the call around 2:45 a.m. and had the fire under control by 3:20 a.m.
Messier said damage from the fire is estimated at $75,000.”
Damage was mostly confined to the basement and there is no suggestion that the Bells Corners firebug is at work.
