  1. We are new to the Ottawa area and live at 160 Granite Court in Kanata. David is 69 and Theresa is 67. We have both been retired for 8+ years. Given that we are seniors, we are excited that Dr Che has a special interest in the senior population and we look forward to meeting with her.

    Thank you
    David & Theresa Holland
