ByWard Market businesses baffled by parking loss due to Inspiration Village

Phil Emond, who runs the Gordon Harrison Canadian Landscape Gallery on Sussex Drive, has written to the mayor, BIA and Ottawa 2017 to share his frustration with the removal of parking on York Street.

“We’ve paid premium rent to rent there in the ByWard Market because of the location, because of the parking,” Emond said.
