The Ottawa River provides us with drinking water, as well as exceptional recreational opportunities, from swimming and boating, to fishing, birding and tranquil sunset walks… The people of Ottawa, and the tourists who flock here, need access to the river to enjoy its many bounties, and it is for this reason that Ottawa Riverkeeper is firmly opposed to the revised plans for the western LRT extension.
We would strongly recommend that council consider other options – such as running the trains fully underground in this section – that do not impede citizen access to the Ottawa River.
Meredith Brown, Riverkeeper and Executive Director, Ottawa Riverkeeper
