What Ottawa really should do

I sure hope the city of Ottawa learns something from this transit strike. After one day of hell I’ve learned something.

Instead of building the massive and very expensive transit system that isn’t going to improve travel times for residents in Kanata, Barrhaven or Riverside South.

What they should do is improve the road ways and build up the capacity needed to get people in and out of these areas, especially when you you look at where the city is going to grow in the next 20 years.

Hunt Club road should be widened, so should Fallowfield between Kanata and Barrhaven. And the Strandherd Bridge should be built now.

Hopefully we’ll get a city government that has the vision to enact the tough changes that are needed and not pander to the vocal minority in this city.
