    Council is composed of fools to accept this blatant misuse of CITY FUNDS for the benefit of OSEG. This is not an April 1st consideration it is a fools errand to throw good money after bad with minimal to no return to the taxpayer and Ottawa being the financial guarantor for this “project” ! Waterdrip number 2

  2. Andrew says:

    These recommendations indicate a conflict of interest and OSEG’s influence over staff and Council. The city did not follow its own policies on this project (proof is in possession) and the conflict is beyond obvious. The province should follow the Planning Act which allows them to take over projects in the public interest.
    Nobody is saying do not do anything, we need a competition and a decision made without the developer influence such as we saw in the Horizon Ottawa report, (the pro-Lansdowne mayor getting over $100K in developer donations for example). Public involvement is not two – 1 hour zoom meetings “question” sections.
