Thank you, Jim Watson! #HungryGhosts

Sometimes people ask me why as someone who has lived all over Canada,  I chose Ottawa. Well, I love Ottawa, and here’s one of the reasons.  We have a wonderful mayor. Jim Watson has been to both my book launches. Each year, he’s also sent me a nice letter congratulating me on my book. But this year, he wasn’t able to make it. He broke his pelvis earlier this year in a snowmobiling accident; his schedule, which is already crazy, has been backed up every since. I was sorry he couldn’t make it, but totally understood. I don’t know he makes it to as many events as he does: he’s pretty amazing.

Nonetheless, I got to work today to find this waiting for me. (And although the picture doesn’t show it, that coat of arms is actually embossed gold.) Seriously, how cool is this?
