Ottawa Riverkeeper Gala 2017

Ottawa Riverkeeper Gala 2017

WarmWishesGifts.ca is delighted to participate again in the Ottawa Riverkeeper Gala 2017.  The Ottawa River is key to the health and well-being of the over 1.7 million people who live within the watershed. But with so much pressure on the river the future of our watershed is threatened by pollution, over-development, dams, weakened laws and lax enforcement of existing regulations.

Pollution on the Ottawa River comes from many sources: sewage from cities and towns; pesticides and fertilizers from farms; effluents from the industries along the river. These pollutants kill wildlife, close beaches and result in consumption warnings for fish caught on the river.

Since 2002, Ottawa Riverkeeper has been at the forefront of fighting pollution on the Ottawa River. With our expert knowledge of river systems and pollution remediation we work cooperatively with all levels of government and industry to help find solutions to stop the pollution that damages our river.

We also help communities and citizens’ groups fight polluters. In 2012, for example, we worked with a town council in Quebec worried about pollution from a storage facility upriver from their drinking-water intake. With the help of our Riverkeeper, the town council was able to understand the regulations, determine the validity of the water quality results presented by the company, and ensure that the technologies were in place to protect the town’s drinking water.

We wish the Ottawa Riverkeeper and all attendees an absolutely wonderful evening and deep pockets for the live auction:  riverkeepergala.com

Une Nuit à Paris...a French Mystery

Une Nuit à Paris...a French Mystery

Spend the evening roaming the Parisian streets, laughing at the mime, and enjoying a mouth watering three-course meal while members of the Algonquin College Theater Arts program captivate your attention with the most intriguing mystery performance. Curiosity will have you on the edge of your seat as you watch the mystery unfold. Do you have what it takes to decipher whodunit?  The soirée also includes a silent auction, tarot card readings, a caracturist, accordinonist, and much more!  

Six students from the Events Management program at Algonquin College are putting together this unique funding raiser on Sunday March 5th, 2017 5-9pm at the Centurion Conference and Events Centre in Ottawa.  Proceeds go to the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada to help Canadian children, families and communities by granting the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.  WarmWishesGifts.ca is proud to contribute to this special event.

400 Years of Immigrants

400 Years of Immigrants

Since the very first immigrants to Canada in 1604, our ancestors have been welcoming other immigrants ever since with open arms.  This picture taken close to Emerson, Manitoba, could not be more Canadian.  Let the politicians argue about the best way to deal with the influx of people over open Canadian borders and in the meantime, let's celebrate and be proud of our open hearts and minds.  What a perfect time to honour our 150th anniversary of Confederation!  

Thank you to all the RCMP, police and EMS folks looking after these brave and vulnerable migrants, and a very big thank you to the fine people of Emerson.  You are all making Canadians very proud!
