The National Capital Commission has approved the transfer of the Sir John Carling land for the new Ottawa hospital.
Several NCC board members raised concern about the plan for surface parking, the amount of land included in the transfer and the cost of environmental cleanup for the area.
Right now the current plan is to allow the hospital to use the 23 hectares for planning, and unused land can be returned. Board member Norman Hotson argued for the opposite, concerned that extra hectares will result in extra surface parking.http://www.metronews.ca/news/ottawa/2017/04/06/ncc-approves-transfer-of-land-for-new-ottawa-hospital.html
