Congratulations to Somerset Councillor Catherine McKenney for being the single vote on city council against the location on LeBreton Flats of the new central library. Final tally 23 to 1.
The new library leaves downtown uncovered by the Ottawa Public Library and McKenney stood up for her ward and her beliefs.
You know there had to be enormous pressure from the mayor and her fellow councillors to make the vote unanimous. But she stuck to her guns. Good on her.
The Bulldog has great respect for people who speak loud and stand up for what they believe is right.
We need more of those folks in Ottawa. McKenney is one of them.
