The National Capital Commission board is starting to show sympathy for Ottawa’s property taxpayers, voting unanimously Monday to approve a new design for a Rideau Canal bridge despite criticisms from an advisory committee.

The city is eager to build a $21-million pedestrian and cycling bridge between Fifth Avenue and Clegg Street to connect the Glebe and Old Ottawa East.
