For years, the Ottawa Hospital promised to hold public consultations to ensure “the best possible integration with the surrounding community.” Pledges were made to ensure the new Civic Hospital would be linked to public transit, that parking would be half of what is now proposed (and buried underground), and that active transportation would be encouraged. These assertions have been proven false as they have decided to go ahead with building an airport-sized parking garage.
Along with and Councillor Shawn Menard, I have written to Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault to ask for an urgent and public environmental assessment for the project. Read the letter here.
If you agree that we need this, use the tool below to send Minister Guilbeault your own letter asking him for this.
Please include your name and postal code in the body of the email before sending.
