The Kanata Page
A website for Kanata, Ontario, near Ottawa
Population 100,200 (2009)
A kaleidoscope of information, business, entertainment, politics,
and the occasional rumour, about Kanata and Kanatians

This site is not being maintained while I am in South Africa.
This is a problem for topical information such as elections. I plan to
have it back in a more useful state by the end of 2020. - Tony Copple

Used clothing? Why not send it to Ghana? I will pick up from Kanata locations, and my good friend Mabel will arrange for it to be sent there. E-mail for action.
