snowmobiles during the winter.
The Village has now passed a locla bylaw requiring all commercial signage to be bilingual. This bylaw is being challeneged by many and by one man who seeks court confirmation of the unconstitutionality of the bylaw.
The village is mainly English with less than a 25% French population.Fact|date=February 2007
The vast majority of the residents work in the city of Ottawa whose core areas are located about 40
kilometersnorthwest of Russell. With the fusion of many outlying municipalities in 2001 the official Ottawa limits moved so close to Russell that in theory one could walk from Russell to Ottawa in a few minutes.
The travel time to the nearest built-up areas of Ottawa is typically 20-25 minutes. In the rush hour it can take up to one hour to reach downtown Ottawa, and much more to reach Ottawa boroughs West of the core zone.Fact|date=February 2007
