Pricey pedestrian bridge a bad use of funds

Re: Federal funds for city include $10.5M for crossing over canal, Aug. 24

How can Mayor Jim Watson even consider spending $21 million on a pedestrian/cycling bridge across the canal? I really don’t care if the federal government has promised $10.5 million to help out. The City of Ottawa doesn’t have a very good track record for pedestrian/cycling bridges. Does anyone else remember the Airport Parkway Pedestrian Bridge fiasco?
