If Ottawa was excluded from the rest of the world and there is still the computers and electricity, there can be the creation of local social media websites such as instead of Facebook, it would be “Ottawabook” while getting the public to join. This can be the main news source of what happens within the city. This can also be for radio and television to say what is going. There can be ways to express the community culture similar to the Aboriginal Potlock’s.
There can be letter sending to those one loves, there can be visitations with neighbours, friends and family. There can be co-op programs or other projects such as a gardening group or reading times at the library.
