(June 29 – July 2), with a midway, classic car show and musical acts.
Barrhaven’s event is one of the busiest in the Ottawa area, if not the
busiest. For more Barrhaven Canada Day photos, see page 3.

South’s Tunde Adeleke of the Calgary Stampeders picked a great place to
make his CFL regular season debut, playing in front of friends and
family at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa June 23. The former St. Francis
Xavier High School Coyote and Carleton Raven was drafted in the third
round of the CFL Draft in May, and made the Stampeders’ roster out of
training camp. Adeleke, who set a CIS record with five kick returns for
touchdowns last year, returned his first punt of the season in a 31-31
overtime tie with the Ottawa Redblacks. The following week, Adeleke ran
a punt back for what would be the winning touchdown in a victory over
Ottawa. It was the first touchdown by a former Raven since Nepean
native and JS Woodsworth graduate Andrew Murray scored for the Toronto
Argonauts in a 1991 Labour Day loss in Hamilton.
