Happy Birthday Jim Watson!

OttawaStart wishes a very happy birthday today to our mayor, Jim Watson.

Here's a good Jim Watson story I heard just yesterday.  A friend of mine saw Jim at a Canadian Tire parking lot, picking up some stray pieces of garbage from the ground.  My friend said hi, and Jim explained what he was doing.

"If everyone in Ottawa just picked up a couple of pieces of garbage like this each day," said Jim, "we'd have a beautiful city."

Cheers Jim!

(True fact: Two other famous Ottawans celebrate a birthday today too: Tom Green and Paul Anka.)
