Backlash could sink Wakefield waterfront revamp - Ottawa - CBC News

By Stu Mills, CBC News Ottawa, January 26, 2017

A project to revitalize Wakefield's shoreline with a dock, boardwalk and new toilets has run into opposition after a municipal councillor from a neighbouring ward called for a public referendum on project financing.

Delays to the project could reportedly jeopardize a grant of $479,000 from the Canada 150 Infrastructure fund.

The opposition, however, is related to a loan from La Pêche, which promised $370,000 that would be paid back over a 25-year period.
