Hour 2 of Ottawa Now for Wed. February 21st, 2024

View descriptionShare

As our population grows and the city intensifies, there will be a growing desire and a crucial need for new housing units – minus the parking spaces. If you are building anything from scratch these days, the conversation always comes back to parking lots, and how you can attract customers on a daily basis. However, you don’t want nearby neighbourhoods to be transformed into default parking lots. And today, calls are growing for the minimum parking rules at housing projects to be axed completely. Is this the best path forward? We open the debate floor with Robert Brinker, the President of the Federation of Citizens' Associations here in Ottawa. Elsewhere in Ontario, the City of Belleville is pleading to the Ford government for financial assistance, with the hopes of building a new health hub to fight against a chaotic overdose crisis. Since then, all they’ve heard is crickets, and the Mayor of Belleville is now taking matters into his own hands.
