The timing has never been better to invest in a tramway running between Ottawa and Gatineau, according to Hull-Aylmer MP Greg Fergus, who also wants to see that tramway connect to Ottawa's new light rail system.

Fergus spoke Monday evening at a public transit forum he helped organize to kick off a week focused on sustainable transportation in Gatineau.

He wants the tramway to connect the fast-growing Aylmer neighbourhood to downtown Gatineau at the Canadian Museum of History, with possible connections to fast-growing neighbourhoods in the Plateau as well as a route over the Prince of Wales Bridge to Ottawa.
