Sick of the city being hauled to court, Mayor Jim Watson says the city can’t risk letting people hang out on a decrepit rail bridge above the Ottawa River.

“I’m getting tired of the city being sued. We spend a lot of money on lawsuits. People love to sue governments,” Watson said, adding that there have been “hazings” and people chasing others across the Prince of Wales Bridge.

“It’s not safe to be on an unused, rickety, old train bridge.”
