Liberal MPs and MPPs are joining Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson's call for the future Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital to be built at the Sir John Carling site.

At a news conference outside the mayor's office on Friday morning, flanked by more than a dozen other politicians, Watson said there has been "a lot of dialogue and collaboration over the last few days."

"Together, we believe that the Sir John Carling site provides the best location to build the hospital of the future," Watson said."The site addresses issues that are critical for a hospital's success, such as its central location, providing easy access from the Queensway, Carling Avenue and Prince of Wales. It's also within 100 metres of the Trillium Line's Carling station.
