Do you have big ideas for the ByWard and Parkdale markets? Are you entrepreneurial, with a strong network and time to offer for free?

If so, this job may be for you.The City of Ottawa wants nine people to form the brand new volunteer board that's intended to revitalize its markets.

(...)She also said the ByWard Market should close streets around the market building so they can be used by pedestrians, cafés and festivals.
