    I truly wish the media would by a map and check city boundaries before they go to print....at no point does Donald Street belong to Vanier...Donald street is in overbrook...we are truly trying to clean up Vanier and its image but it is hard when anytime something happens in overbrook or sandy hill or on the market side of the Rideau river the media calls it Vanier and runs us through the ringer...come on I'll admit Vanier still has a ways to go but it doesn't help if you keep ripping the carpet out from under us
