“It has been my pleasure to work over the last 12 years with Elaina in her role of producer of Westfest, Ottawa’s largest and amongst the only totally free festivals of music and art. To say that we are impressed is a serious understatement. Her vision, sense of mission and purpose, ethics, work ethic, and ability are all exceptional, but what impresses the most is her sheer determination. I have called her a force of nature…”
