I have to admit that when I first saw these scooters hit the streets in Ottawa I doubted their ability to become popular, especially with the pan-dammit and all. In this instance I am pleased to be wrong. I find it refreshing to see so many outside and having fun. All we need now is the winter version with a ski and a snowmobile track.

Mr. Bombardier?

Today as I worked on this photograph I thought of what an Ottawa Police officer had told me days after the shooting of Corporal Nathan Cirillo in 2014. ( an incredible tragedy ) As she guarded the soldiers at the National War Memorial, she told me that she was honoured to be protecting our soldiers. I was so impressed and humbled by her words.
