The Glebe Outlook: The Glebe’s First Community Newspaper, Part 1

A few months ago, this intrepid GlebeSite researcher stumbled across some most interesting documents at the City of Ottawa Archives. Here was a letter, see below, advertising the merits of the Glebe Outlook newspaper. Not only that, but it was published by the Glebe Municipal Association. Attached with the letter was a copy of the Glebe Outlook, and the date? April 1928! So there was real evidence of community activism long before the Glebe Community Association was founded in 1967, and the Glebe Report in 1973.

More to come about the origins of the GMA and GO, and one of its founders!
