Community safety meeting: issues at Bayswater/Spadina

You are here

Residents have become increasingly concerned about repeated violent and disruptive incidents at the corner of Bayswater/Somerset and its immediate area. Most recently very early Saturday morning, there was a stabbing. This follows the discharge of a firearm at the corner on October 21.

Please join me, the Hintonburg Community Association, and Ottawa Police Service for a community meeting to discuss the ongoing problems in this area. The meeting will be held at Happy Goat Coffee, 35 Laurel Street, on Thursday November 10 from 7:30 PM to 9 PM. We will have an opportunity to hear from police about what they can share about the incident, and to explore community solutions to the ongoing problems.

Rest assured that the City, the police and I are aware of the ongoing problems. Efforts to address them have been longstanding. If you have information about criminal or suspicious activity in this area, please contact the Ottawa Police Service at 613.236.1212.
