Community advocates want the candidates in the upcoming Ottawa-Vanier byelection to commit to helping refresh the Byward Market.
The Lowertown Community Association, Action Sandy Hill and Ecology Ottawa has invited all candidates in the April 3 vote to a walkabout in the market Wednesday afternoon.
Liz Bernstein, president of LCA, said they want to hear from the candidates about their commitment because the market needs their support.
“People will get a taste or a flavour of what more could be happening,” she said. “It’s really an appeal from citizens that we invest in something more long-term.”http://www.metronews.ca/news/ottawa/2017/03/14/ottawa-vanier-candidates-to-be-grilled-on-byward-market.html
