Science and Tech Museum silent as asbestos report surfaces

Posted on October 8, 2014

A new report says asbestos, not just mould, is the problem at the Canada Science and Technology Museum — but officials aren’t discussing the problem publicly. The museum closed Sept. 11 because of mould inside its south wall. It will remain closed at least until January.

But on Tuesday the local riding’s MP, Liberal David McGuinty, told the Citizen he has learned the mouldy wall is supporting a roof that contains asbestos, complicating the repairs. McGuinty said the government has ignored the aging museum while pouring large amounts into renaming the Museum of History and commemorating the War of 1812.

McGuinty calls on Baird to relinquish regional minister duties

Posted on September 30, 2014

Ottawa South Liberal MP David McGuinty is calling on Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird to give up his responsibilities as regional minister.

Mr. McGuinty told OBJ the decision to move the Capital Infocentre off Wellington Street in 2011, only to move it back this past summer – at a total cost of more than $300,000 – is just the latest example of a minister “who appears to be afraid to involve himself in the region.”

Alta Vista amputee among War Amps volunteer award recipients

Posted on July 15, 2014

McGuinty told the young recipients that the work they are doing through The War Amps is very important.

His own mother and father established a summer camp for children for 14 years, and reserved complimentary spots every year for children with developmental and physical disabilities.

“My parents always insisted that we were not going to just have a summer camp where the kids who were coming to the camp were not representative of all of society,” said McGuinty.

“You’re making an incredible contribution,” he said before presenting the young people with certificates to mark the occasion.

“People look to this kind of effort because it makes us a better place. It makes us a better community. It makes us a better society.”
