Wet and wild Canada Day!

A couple from Barrhaven along with their guests from New Brunswick look on as the Canada Day fireworks explode above Clarke Fields on July 1. They and many others parked on Cedarview Rd. to take in the pyrotechnics. The Canada Day in Barrhaven was spread out over four days (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.

Tunde Returns!
Riverside 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.
