Project will hit several neighbourhoods hard

Re: New Edinburgh Gets the Shaft, Dec. 12.

Kelly Egan’s article rightly notes that City Hall’s decision to turn our quiet neighbourhood into a massive quarry site has hit hard. Two points of clarification: Our objection is not the Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel (CSST). The project is important for the health of Ottawa’s rivers, and we knew it would require major construction work in the middle of New Edinburgh. Our argument is against the city’s decree to make Stanley Park the “staging area” (big hole) for all the tunnelling work.
