Time to open up Sparks Street for traffic

Re: Let us try, once more, to save Sparks Street, Jan. 12.

Sparks Street was a great and successful experiment in its day, but those days are long gone. You can’t revive a dead horse.

Sparks Street will never be another Distillery district (because it’s not Toronto), and it will never be another Crescent Street (because it’s not Montréal). Ottawa itself has changed since the peak Spark Street days.
