Fevers are an Ottawa-based five-piece and purveyors of independent, electronic pop. Theirs is a fresh take on a classic genre, combining indie rock and electronic music. They build on the work of current and past electronic artists to develop their own distinct sound—one that is at once wholly modern and informed by careful listening.

Fevers are Colin MacDougall, Jim Hopkins, Martin Charbonneau, Mike Stauffer and Sarah Bradley.

Park Fact: The park commemorates the Soviet Defector Igor Gouzenko who was a cipher clerk for the Soviet Embassy to Canada in Ottawa, Ontario. He defected on September 5, 1945, with 109 documents on Soviet espionage activities in the West. This forced Prime Minister Mackenzie King to call a Royal Commission to investigate espionage in Canada.

Gouzenko exposed Joseph Stalin's efforts to steal nuclear secrets, and the technique of planting sleeper agents. The "Gouzenko Affair" is often credited as a triggering event of the Cold War.

It was from this park that Royal Canadian Mounted Police agents monitored Gouzenko's apartment across the street on the night men from the Soviet embassy came looking for Gouzenko. The memorial plaques are the result of four years of effort by history enthusiast Andrew Kavchak, who first came across Gouzenko's case, and decided that "the first major international event of the Cold War" deserved a memorial.
