FULCRUM RADIO SHOW SPECIAL: Save The Hunt Club Forest
Author's Video Note:
This is a special episode of The Fulcrum Radio Show,
Hunt Club is a road in the south of Ottawa that runs east to west spanning the city. The Hunt Club Forest is close to the airport, in fact it is airport property. Of course, the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, and its land is owned by the crown. As an international travel point, that part of the crown would be the Ministry of Transportation.
Hunt club road runs along south Ottawa, east to west. The boundaries of the forest are airport property. Right next to the forest, is Otto’s BMW dealership. The dealership put in a development application to buy some of the forest, so they could extend their parking lot and park a few more BMWs out there. While Mark LaRoche, the President of the Airport Authority has been public about his support about selling the forest.
So I went out to the hunt club forest, to speak with some people who really care about this issue. And that’s where this story starts.
We go out to the Hunt Club Forest and meet Jennifer Dey, Michael Vorobej, Carolyn Ewers, Zoe Pomainville and Don Paice.
Special thanks to Violet Manh, Keagan Knight, Romano DiFranco and Alicia Bedore.
