Liquid Gym employees do the ice-bucket thing.

Tourists at the Bells Corners McDo – the couple on the left are from Hungary and the other guy is from Kazakhstan.

The Hungarian tourists had a great time practising their English with the friendly locals at Local Heroes.
hung4
They LOVED their visit to Bells Corners, especially touring leafy Lynwood Village and biking the Greenbelt trails in Stony Swamp.

“Wow! It’s SO different from Budapest!” they exclaimed, riding off into the sunset on their way to the Gatineau Park.
crowd
Meanwhile Rick was busy campaigning with tax dollars. Not much of a crowd in spite of an intensive taxpayer-funded door-to-door effort to get local residents out to watch WECA Bill and Rick try to take credit for Dragonfly Park.
OCDSB
There’s ALWAYS “free” food and drink when the councillor’s politicking. I noticed Rick had added another member to his “team” – a guy hoping to replace Pam FitzGerald as OCDSB trustee by cozying up to Rick.
ocdsbzone5
He’s unlikely to win.
churchguy
Here he is discussing strategy with Rick and some people from the Catholic Church at another of the councillor’s shady campaign events.
ribboncuttingbarry
Here he’s taking a photo for Rick’s Twitter feed.
tagteam2
Rick had to share the limelight with a top-ranking bureaucrat from the OCDSB.
thewoods
The Woods is a great local band willing to play at community events.
bbq
Catholic church volunteers did the hotdogs – much tastier than the stale chickendogs that Team Rick usually grills up at campaign events.
funnyguy
The crowd was there to honour Barry Donoghue, not a deceitful career politician like Rick.
awesomeoldies
These frisky oldtimers came all the way from Thorncliffe Place with their walkers.
thornguy
The hot dogs were gone by the time they arrived but they didn’t mind.
lida
Lida looked sad – maybe she’s sick of it all.
rickspeech
Maybe she’s sorry for all the dirty tricks.
nissanMyers
Tony Graham Nissan is no more – a new Myers sign will be going up soon and then the Nissan dealership will be leaving for Kanata in a year or two. It might be hard to rent out that space when they leave.
mongol2
Too bad the Mongolian Village is being forced to relocate – here’s their new space.
cockdig
New sign but same old Cock/Bull?
cock
Or will it be rebranded as something else?
sunflower
A sunflower and a nice garden and bench at the Kimberly Apartments – too bad about the ash trees.
bellHSsign
Looks like there’s no legal way to bike or walk from Donoghue Memorial Park to the Bruce Pit and the bike paths leaving Bells Corners after 22h30 – you’d have to trespass on Bell HS property.
bollywood
The Urban Tandoor (where Haveli’s used to be) is very popular.

Curious that Rick snubbed the Urban Tandoor in his campaign literature.
estatesaleped
This woman was just out for a stroll along the strip.
jobs
There are fast food jobs all over the place in Bells Corners if that’s what you want.
mcdo2
These guys are thinking of applying.
mcdo3
Maybe they should go into politics instead like me – here are my election promises.


You can also vote for me here.

Hoot! Hoot! I won last time – hoping to make it two victories in a row!
