This Flickr photo by Douglas Sprott of a gargoyle on the old Imperial Theatre on Bank Street says it all. When nearly 80% of respondents to an informal poll done by CBC Ottawa on February 13, 2013 have said No to the question "Do you think the city is doing enough to protect heritage buildings?", you know there just might be a problem.
Coming soon in Ontario is Heritage Week, which will be be from February 18-24th. During this week, there will be Heritage Day, which is Monday, February 18th (it is also family day!) and this year's theme, sponsored by Heritage Ottawa's partner organization the Heritage Canada Foundation, is Good Neighbours!
