▪️Stittsville ward councillor Glen Gower will bring up the Little Library issue at tomorrow's Council meeting. City of Ottawa bylaw officers threatened a family with a fine if they did not remove their Little Library from next to the sidewalk. Gower says the bylaw is intended for things like sheds, Little Libraries were not contemplated. [CBC]

▪️The City has delayed the return of e-scooter rentals until companies can prove the devices won't run on sidewalks. E-scooters are tons of fun – please don't unsubscribe. But residents complain that people use them on sidewalks or park them in places that impede people with disabilities. The delay will probably last until early July. [CBC]
