Once Ottawa’s premiere tourist attraction (“a second Niagara”), Chaudière Falls is an impressive waterfall whose internal architecture features a swirling vortex of water at its base. There are 10 reasons to oppose the proposed commercial development at this sacred site on the Ottawa River.
All Canadians can choose to stand in solidarity with Algonquin/Anishinaabeg nations opposing the Dream Corp./Windmill mega-project at Chaudière Falls. These islands and the waters around them must remain a public space open to all nations, as evoked by the late Kitigan Zibi elder William Commanda. Based on principles of justice.

Paco Dvoi CD Release
Local Man Delivers Potent Folk and Slam
Friday, January 22 : The Shanghai : 8:30 pm : $5 cover
The physical release of Paco’s second album, Morphogenesis, will be celebrated with a live performance at Shanghai, featuring Karen Rauh on keyboard and background vocals. Paco’s sister, Esperanza, will also be in from Toronto to accompany her bro in the powerful duet “Money” about a sweet talking man wooing a street-hardened woman https://soundcloud.com/pacodvoi/money. $5 cover at door.
Morphogenesis consists of 12 poetically-charged folk rock songs and spoken word pieces that explore themes related to life, death, love, and the delicate state of the world. Acoustic guitar songs with melodic vocal hooks and harmonies are juxtaposed with verbal outpours about life in North America https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7v_5KrI1gM, urban entrapment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pP3mXrHZHI, estranged friends, the limits of progress https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqUglWcMDrk and the need for widespread transformation. The album is a poetic reflection on certain aspects of societal illness, but also a celebration of artistic development and inner peace.
