Ottawa residents are being asked to help name the new footbridge over the Rideau Canal.

But Councillor David Chernushenko says “Bridgey McBridgeface is not eligible.”

The Capital Ward Councillor is collecting suggestions for names that honour local historical events, people or places, or outstanding individuals of the community.

Residents can complete the form on Chernushenko’s website, and explain in 250 words or less why it’s an appropriate name. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2018.
