The Vision Jasmine Committee came together back in 2016 when the Jasmine Crescent community had experienced some devastating losses. With the help of Constable Brad Burleau and myself, we assembled this committee to help bring everyone back together again. Throughout the last two years, we’ve organized marches, BBQs, movie nights, and winter festivals, all in an effort to regain peace and trust in the community, and with every event, the numbers have grown! It is with this time and commitment that the Vision Jasmine Committee was recently recognized for their contributions to their community as recipients of the Community Program Award through Crime Prevention Ottawa, an award I am very pleased to accept.
