  • Canal Wall Work Brings Detour and Path Improvements

    Canal Wall Work Brings Detour and Path Improvements Another major infrastructure project has begun along the Rideau Canal: Parks Canada’s rehabilitation of the 262 metre section of the Canal wall running from the Concord Street North to Main Street in Old Ottawa East. This project is part of the $15 million investment into Rideau Canal wall repairs, stemming from a $3.2 billion nation-wide program to maintain assets within national parks and historic sites, and is similar in nature to the wall rebuild done over the last few years on both sides of the Canal near Bank Street.

  • Bill 66: What It Is & Why It Matters

    Bill 66 is a provincial bill that would allow municipalities to by-pass both land-use planning and environmental regulations in the name of being 'Open for Business'. Under the envisioned scenario, a large business could be given a pass if it provided a certain level of local employment—100 people in Ottawa's case. A law by-passing other laws and protections, generations in the making, is deeply concerning, but the legislation goes further, foregoing any consultative process with the public and disallowing residents from appealing such 'Open for Business' decisions. The actual environmental consequences of land development in sensitive areas should this this legislation be enacted, should also give cause for serious pause.
