Good morning folks

Thank you for “tuning in” to the August edition of Black Ottawa Scene. We are using this edition to feature Our 2018 graduates, the Top Story for this edition. Congratulations to these wonderful high achieving young men and women; the future is in your hands.

Under Religion, Bishop Jacob Afolabi speaks about the purpose of life, while our psychologist Dr.Helen Ofosu takes readers into the world of racism in the workplace in Building Resilient Careers section. In Sports we join the trending argument about Africa’s contribution to the France World Cup winning team. Our Obituary section brings readers the sudden and tragic death of 39 year old Nosa Ogbebor, who passed away  doing what he loved, playing the beautiful game of soccer. On the same page we report on the drowning death of former NHL star, Ray Emery. Under Social we bring you the reception by the Nigerian community for visiting Catholic bishop, His Lordship Paulinus Ezeokafor. Other events in the past two months include the talent show by the Jamaican Ottawa Community Association and the celebration of Multiculturalism Day hosted by the African Canadian Association of Ottawa (ACAO).  Our  Interview features a conversation with artist and perfromer, Hasina Kamanzi.

Here is the result of the July 2018 poll: 

Which team do you think will win the World Cup of Soccer?

  • France (42%)
  • Belgium (17%,)
  • Brazil (17%)
  • Uruguay (8%)
  • England (8%)
  • None of the above (8%)

Thank to all who voted.  Remember to vote in the August 2018 poll:

Are you concerned that gun violence  would spread from Toronto to other parts of Canada?
