Fill in or Drain the Quarry- For the safety of others
UPDATE 9/3/2015- I have changed the target number of signature from 3,000 to 1,000.
This petition is in honour of Jimmy Ngandu, who drowned on August 09th, 2015 at the abandoned quarry in Barrhaven. Following this devastating incident, we are petitioning to have the quarry drained or filled in- for the safety of others. Once the target of 3,000 signatures has been met, a letter, along with the petition, will be sent to Mattamy Homes (who own this quarry). We are hoping they will see the importance of preventing any other incident.
Jimmy's death is the second since 2003, when 18-year-old Sami Mohammed also drowned.

Thank you for taking the time to read, sign and share the petition. No parent should have to bury their child.
Rest in peace Jimmy, you will be missed.
