A couple of Tuesdays ago, I spoke with David Gladstone of Friends of the O-Train about transit in Ottawa. The interview began as a discussion about the city’s so-called transit “wishlist”, but quickly evolved into a broader discussion on mass-transit strategy in the city since the last election.
At one point, Mr. Gladstone speaks of a council committee meeting that he will be attending the next day. That meeting would turn out to be quite interesting, with a new light rail proposal emerging, something which at least on the surface seems to be more than the “back of the napkin” plans Gladstone decries in this interview.
