It's Hallie's turn to leave the studio and shine a light on one area of this city that's changing.  

First stop, Manotick. 

It used to be a picturesque village just south of Ottawa, known for its historic mill.

Now, it's a community inside Ottawa's city boundaries — and just a short drive from suburban Barrhaven.

How is the community coping with the change that comes when the city approaches? What should this rural village do to keep its charm? What makes Manotick unique?  

We asked community leaders and Manotick residents to weigh in on our special Friday morning broadcast. 

Listen to some of the highlights by clicking on the clips we've put a little higher up in the story.
