Ottawa council is staying on the road to building a truck tunnel between Highway 417 and the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge to Gatineau.

Council voted 21-2 Wednesday to move forward with a tunnel environmental assessment, subject to funding help from the upper-tier governments.

Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Michael Qaqish dismissed the tunnel as a project of “political convenience” with a massive price tag, even before knowing the ground conditions.
