Chimeda – Paddling for reconciliation

This Canada Day, folks from my community (Wakefield and Chelsea, QC – about 30 km north of Ottawa) paddled the Gatineau River to Ottawa with folks from Kitigan Zibi Algonquin First Nation.  It’s a paddle bringing about real, community based reconciliation and transformation. This year was particularly significant, due to the importance placed on Canada’s 150th anniversary. read more

2017 CN CHEO Ride for Charity

From learning new skills to boosting self-confidence, there are endless rewards associated with helping others. Needless to say, there is power in giving back and it’s an imperative value to the Systemscope team. read more

The Night Before Christmas — A Visit to Systemscope

  • ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the city
  • Not a public servant was stirring, not even a Committee.
  • The RFPs were submitted to Procurement with care,
  • In hopes that contracts soon would be there.
  • The consultants were nestled all snug in their desks,
  • While Gantt charts a-many directed their tasks.
