The Federation of Citizens’ Associations of Ottawa finds major problems with the huge 900 Albert Street development and calls for a delay in its approval.
That approval is expected to be rubber-stamped at planning committee on Tuesday and Ottawa City Council on Wednesday in an outrageous and disgusting attack on good governance, real public consultation and participatory democracy by Mayor Jim Watson, planning committee chairwoman Jan Harder and city manager Steve Kanellakos.

This is a vitally important issue and, if steamrollered through planning committee and council in two days, represents a serious abuse of municipal power.
