Eric Czapnik Lane?


The Rehabilitation Centre had a moment of silence at the beginning of Constable Eric Czapnik’s funeral. I teared up at the thought of someone working so hard against many obstacles only to be senselessly murdered.

I wonder if  my wee section of Louisa Street could be called something like ‘Eric Czapnik Lane’?

This makes sense to me.

I live on the section of Louisa Street between Bell and Booth. In this section there is a Polish Catholic Church called St. Hyacinth. Around the corner is Wedel, a store which specializes in Polish food. (Awesome pirogies!) My neighbourhood attracts people of Polish descent and origin from all parts of Ottawa.

I would be honoured to live on Eric Czapnik Lane.

What do you think?
