Short list of up to 3 potential sites for Ottawa's central library to be kept secret - Ottawa - CBC News

By Joanne Chianello, CBC News Ottawa, August 16, 2016

An advocacy group is calling for the short list of potential sites for a new central branch to be made public after the Ottawa Public Library board decides on the finalists at its meeting Tuesday.

Emilie Taman, of the group Bookmark the Core, calls the process "hugely problematic" and wants more transparency.

"Without disclosing which the top sites are, I think it's going to be very difficult for the public to have confidence in the process. And that's been our biggest issue from the very beginning," she told CBC News.
