"Christ Church in Ottawa marks its 120th anniversary as a cathedral this year , but along with the celebrations comes word that the heritage church is urgently in need of repair. A consultant's report commissioned by the cathedral's corporation has identified six 'critical areas' needing immediate action and others requiring attention over the next five years". Blair Seaborn is chair of Restoration 120, a fundraising campaign to raise $120,000 for repairs. "In earlier years, the cathedral received small grants from the federal and provincial governments, but money for the restoration has come mainly from parishioners and parish groups. 'The simple truth is that it is a heritage asset, but it's ours to maintain', said cathedral Dean Shane Parker".
