By The Editor, Ottawa Citizen, March 2, 2017

It’s a little tough to think about lounging on a patio at the moment, cold beer in hand, but your city councillors are doing that musing for you. New rules approved by the transportation committee will mean year-round patios, more walking space for pedestrians and lower fees for restaurant or bar proprietors.

Patios add life and vibrancy to this city, and while in winter they might be used mostly for storage, there will always be a hardy few – willing to sit outside and make them worthwhile.
