Several Ottawa city councillors claim they were misled by city staff about a delay in the city's $2.1-billion Confederation Line, even after asking specific questions about the project during budget deliberations only days earlier.

On Friday the city's general manager of transportation, John Manconi, announced Rideau Transit Group (RTG) would not meet its May 24, 2018, deadline to hand the new light rail system over to the city.
