When he was president of the Briarbrook and Morgan's Grant Community Association he led a successful fight against graffiti, hosted two Multicultural Festivals, multiple Winter Family Fun Days, and multiple Summer Festivals. He also hosted many community meetings to address a wide range of issues - from crime, to transportation, to pushing for the Terry Fox Drive extension to be built.<br /><br />He is currently the president of the Kanata Lakes Community Association, and he continues to organize community-building events, as well as standing up for Kanata North on issues that range from fighting a tax levy on Kanata North, to demanding that Kanata be included in the City's Light Rail plans.<br /><br />Matt was instrumental in uniting the three community associations of Kanata North under one banner. Briarbrook &amp; Morgan's Grant, Beaverbrook, and Kanata Lakes united to form the Kanata North Council of Community Associations. As a larger organization, the KNCCA was able to fight for better planning practices in each neighbourhood of Kanata North.<br /><br />Matt has received, and been nominated for, many awards for his community activism. He was awarded the Mayor's Agent of Change Medallion by former Mayor Larry O'Brien. He received a Civic Appreciation certificate from the City of Ottawa, and Matt was recently nominated for Adult Citizen of the Year in the Kanata North awards.<br /><br />There are still many ways that Matt wants to bring his unique skill-set to Ottawa's city hall. Please give him your support on October 27th, 2014, and let's make Kanata North even better!MJMuirheadnoreply@blogger.com
