Welcome Cédric Garnier!

Cédric’s journey with Otesha has just begun as The Otesha Project Marketing Coordinator. With a strong marketing background—acquired through a bachelor degree in marketing from the University of Ottawa and experience as an independent Marketing Consultant for local businesses, he is overjoyed to join such a passionate and creative staff, and to coordinate Otesha’s future marketing campaigns. As a self-proclaimed music enthusiast, he adores attending live shows and listening to music of different genres in his spare time.



David Chernushenko, a city councillor in Ottawa, Ontario, is determined to make his hometown a better city for cycling. In 2011, the League of American Bicyclists and Share the Road Coalition recognized Ottawa with a Silver rating for bike friendliness. Silver is good, but it’s not Gold.
David wants Ottawa — and every American and Canadian city — to strive for Gold, and he’s going to take us on a ride to find out how it can be done. He’ll show us how Copenhagen set the gold standard for cycling and quality of life, and look at what some North American cities are doing right.
Directed by David Chernushenko. Produced by Living Lightly Productions/Green & Gold Inc and Executive Producers Terry Kimmel and Tucker House Renewal Centre. Find out more about the film HERE.
