Reevely: Feds say they'll pay $11.8M to clean up new Civic site

By David Reevely, Ottawa Citizen, February 23, 2018

The federal government will pay $11.8 million to clean up poisoned soil on the Carling Avenue property it’s leasing to the Ottawa Hospital for a new Civic campus, Liberal MP Steven MacKinnon said Friday.

That’s part of a 99-year agreement for a site at the northeast corner of the Central Experimental Farm, near Dow’s Lake, where Agriculture Canada’s Sir John Carling Building used to be. MacKinnon is the member of Parliament for Gatineau and parliamentary secretary to Carla Qualtrough, the minister of public services and procurement. Her department is the land’s custodian.
