Ottawa’s lagging behind when it comes to adopting new tech in city planning, one councillor says.

Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said Ottawa staff should be looking at new, innovative ways of processing garbage, designing roads and building city infrastructure if the capital wants to keep its reputation as a technology hub.

“It’s amazing what’s going on around the world right now and we’re not where I’d like us to be,” Hubley said. “There are other cities getting ahead of us. We should be paying a lot more attention to this.”
