The Ottawan


HELLO OTTAWA 

A short and late ottawan today. Circumstances prevailed, one of which was digging out our uncollected recycling bins from beneath the snow plow’s wake and dragging them back home.

We'll see you tomorrow– Martha and Darren

WHAT OTTAWA IS TALKING ABOUT

▪️The Ottawa Transit Riders Group wants to know what you thought of the free buses and trains in December. The City gave away free transit for a month as an apology for having no O-Train service for a month or so. We think what they are getting at is - did you use transit more often because it was free?  [Survey]

▪️The City has lifted its no-sledding moritorium on municipal hills.  [CityNews]
