Ottawa, ON – Nepean Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre and MPP Lisa MacLeod took to the sky on Sunday to get a new perspective of the communities they represent. During their flight with pilot Norman April, AKA “Norm the Dutchman,” a Nepean resident, the two local representatives were able to view notable landmarks such as Manotick’s Watson’s Mill and the new RCMP headquarters (formerly the JDS Uniphase building).
Lisa MacLeod enjoyed her time in the air. “The aerial tour gave me an opportunity to see the natural beauty of our community, including the vast farmlands in North Gower and Osgoode, the intensity of growth in Riverside South and Barrhaven… I’d do it again in a heartbeat,” said Mrs. MacLeod.
The sky-tour also gave Mr. Poilievre a good view of the results he has achieved as MP for Nepean-Carleton. “It is humbling to get a bird’s-eye-view of the communities we represent,” said Mr. Poilievre of the view. “The beauty and the uniqueness of communities like Manotick, Riverside South, Barrhaven, and Osgoode are impressive from the air.” Looking out the window of the small plane, one can see the recent improvements, such as construction on Limebank Road and the new RCMP headquarters in Barrhaven, two projects Mr. Poilievre helped advance.
Shortly after stepping off of the plane, Mr. Poilievre commented on his next project: “Hopefully my next flight over the area will include a view of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge.”
