American Sign Language

Some sort of person who can make some sounds from a guitar which may sound decent some of the time.

Cook delectable meals.
How would you like to see Ottawa look and feel in the future?

- Bike lanes.

- Bike EDUCATION. There are far too many cyclists that break the rules and make everyone else look bad. Similarly there are too bad drivers who feel bikes do not belong on roads (probably because of the bad cyclists...or because they're dicks).

Home gardens from the rooftop to the windowsill to the street corner to the vacant lot.
What part would you like to contribute to this?
I'm really into bike that?
If you could create your ideal participation with Transition Ottawa, what would it be?
Where what I say goes!

"Abolish this parking lane and create a bike lane! Mwahahahahahahaha"

Welcome, Tom!
I like the idea of greening from rooftop to windowsill and all vacant areas.
Food springing from every nook... and flowers...
