  • Ottawa Now – After a dress code blitz caused a stir on social media, local school board begins the conversation to restore trust with students

Students, mostly female, were pulled out of class at the Orleans school last Thursday to confirm whether or not their attire followed the rules. The school board responsible says they would look at changing the enforcement of the school’s dress code and they would also examine the dress code itself. What has happened since those conversations? Kristy Cameron is joined by Jason Dupuis, the Superintendent of Education at Ottawa’s French Catholic School Board, and Daniel Boudria, a School Board Trustee for Cumberland Ward.
  • Ottawa Now – Shortage of glass bottles creating a massive hangover for local distilleries

    The threat of COVID-19 in indoor settings, combined with sharp upticks in new cases, served as a gut-punch to the bottom-line of several restaurants. The curveballs didn’t stop last year, either. Today, a new threat is causing massive hangovers for these businesses. It’s a glass bottle shortage stemming from supply chain issues caused by the pandemic. The owner of a micro-distillery located in Kanata says his business was recently reduced to selling spirits in maple syrup bottles, adding that newer bottles might not be seen until 2023. Adam Brierley from Ogham Craft Spirits outlines the current challenges that lie ahead for his company on Ottawa Now.
