Stavinga supported building an expensive pipeline to Ottawa's central treatment plant. Others felt it would be better to build a small local facility. The residents of Richmond (Richmond, Ontario) in her ward, strongly opposed the pipeline, which would run under their area. A major concern of Richmond residents was a perceived danger to their water supply, as most of Richmond uses well water. The pipeline debate was a central issue in the Goulbourn ward in the 2003 Ottawa election with Michael O'Rourke opposing the pipeline. Despite the strong opposition from a part of the ward Stavinga was elected with a strong majority. *'''St. Mark Catholic High School (St. Mark Catholic High School (Ottawa))''' - Teaches grades 7-8 and 9-12 in English and French Lyon was born in Richmond, Ontario, near Ottawa.

History The community owes its existence to its location on the Richmond Road (Richmond Road (Ottawa)) midway between Richmond Landing near Bytown (now Ottawa) and the military settlement at Richmond (Richmond, Ontario), at the junction with the concession road leading west to the Hazeldean neighbourhood in neighbouring Goulbourn Township (Goulbourn Township, Ontario). It was also the junction between Richmond Road and the "base line" (Baseline Road (Ottawa)) which was the boundary road between concessions on the Ottawa front and those on the Rideau front. Hence, the plural "Corners". It was named after Hugh Bell (Hugh Bell (settler)), who owned a tavern on the site of the present day Bells Corners Public School from 1834 to 1863.<

Richmond, Ontario

'''Richmond''' is a Canadian village. City of Ottawa Official Plan showing rural villages within new municipal boundary: http: www.ottawa.ca city_hall ottawa2020 official_plan vol_1 06_schedules schedule_a_en.pdf Founded in 1818, it spans the Jock River, a tributary of the Rideau River. Like many communities in eastern Ontario, Richmond houses several unique populations. Some residents have historic and economic roots in the immediate area. Richmond operates as a small core to its residents. To others, the village serves as a bedroom community for the larger urban area of Ottawa. Richmond's amalgamation with the city of Ottawa in 2001 has had mixed results. A significant impact on democratic representation, as well as threats to local values and determination are some of the major concerns. Richmond is 15&nbsp;km from North Gower, 32&nbsp;km from Carleton Place (Carleton Place, Ontario), 36&nbsp;km from Downtown Ottawa, 41&nbsp;km from Smiths Falls (Smiths Falls, Ontario) and 45&nbsp;km from Perth (Perth, Ontario). Its population at the Canada 2006 Census was 3,301.
