OTTAWA’S PUBLIC TRANSIT will be hectic until 2018, according to Mayor Jim Watson. This year’s university move-in weekend will provide new and returning students with first-hand experience of the discord expected in the downtown core with the construction of the new Light Rail Transit (LRT) line.

On Oct. 10, the Ottawa city council voted in favour of a motion to allow the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) to seek private-sector funding for a casino in the nation’s capital.

The mayor of Ottawa is opening up the doors of City Hall and giving the city’s youth a chance to have their voices heard by their local government.
