Denis' Dinner

I just received this photo of a meal which Denis, the French-Canadian caretaker at Somerville Place social housing near Oppenheimer Park, made for anybody in the building on Christmas. It was his Christmas gift.

Denis apparently went to Superstore on the Saturday before Christmas, and was stuck there for two hours because there were 6 cashiers for roughly 200 customers.

Being from Ottawa, Denis was really on top of the heavy snowfall. He got the sidewalk in front of Sommerville Place cleared quickly, residents report. He used salt. When you looked at his sidewalk, you'd think it was summertime, a neighbor said. Compare Denis to staff at the Police station a few blocks away who were much slower to get on top of the snow.
