Canada, in cooperation with the City of Ottawa and the Ville de
Gatineau, developed the ‘Operation ReLeaf – Ottawa-Gatineau Tornadoes’
program following the
September 2018 tornadoes and windstorm. This program provides up to
$300 to reimburse landowners for tree planting on private property to
replace forest cover. Tree Canada received close to 190 applications in
the first round this spring. They have now opened
a second application period which closes August 31st for
trees that will be planted this fall. For this round, they are also
accepting applications from landowners that had trees impacted by the
2019 tornado in Orleans. The link to the application
form is https://treecanada.ca/operationreleaf/ottawa-gatineau/
A Company of Fools will once again bring their outdoor theatre to Fisher Heights Park – Tomorrow, Thursday July 18. The show begins at 7 pm. Bring a blanket or chair, your friends and family, and be prepared to enjoy Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet”, as adapted and directed by Nicolas Leno.
For 17 summers, the “Fools” have been presenting their “Torchlight Shakespeare” in Ottawa parks. This year, a carnival setting creates the backdrop for the Fools’ fantastical take on the world’s favourite romance. Swords are paired with water pistols, and live music is played by a carnie barker with a megaphone. Audiences will be transported to an adolescent paradise of dangerous pleasure.
See Patrick Langston’s glowing review of the show, at: https://artsfile.ca/review-no-foolin-this-romeo-and-juliet-a-capering-classic/
Show starts at 7 pm on Thursday July 18 and admission is Pay-What-You Can. (Suggested Donation: $15-$20.)
