Q8 - Will you support our target for a 40% tree canopy cover per neighborhood and protection of mature trees through the new Tree Protection By-Law?

Stephanie Maghnam

Yes. I'm a champion for green space preservation by having helped establish the Dunrobin Parkette.  During my time serving on the Executive of the Kanata-March Horticultural Society, I contributed to the successful installation of Gale's Garden at the Ruddy Shenkman Hospice in Kanata.  I have supported many community garden initiatives including the Molly Wilson Community Gardens, Trailing Edge Community Gardens and the Herzberg Community gardens in providing access to fresh, healthy and nutritious food for our community members.  

During my time serving with the KMHS, I understood the importance of promoting and protecting pollinator health in our communities - more specifically in our own backyards. I helped promote pollinator health and provided garden lectures at the local Chapters.

After the May derecho storms, we saw the devastation to Ottawas tree canopy.  I am certainly committed to supporting a target of 40% tree canopy coverage per neighbourhood and the protection of our trees.

Ian Madill

Yes. I took part in the city's tree give away program when it was available and would support this.  Mature tree protection by-law i see as an issue, as one of your previous questions with weather events like tornadoes and high winds, if a property owner is worried about potential damage with a mature tree, what would their recourse be?  I think there are merits to the bylaw but i also see a few detractions.
