The messy winter storm that has threatened Ottawa all weekend arrived Sunday afternoon with freezing rain and ice pellets that were making streets and sidewalks slippery.

The City of Ottawa urged people to drive, bike and walk “with caution”. The city confirmed staff would be salting and plowing “as necessary throughout the day/night.” There were 120 city trucks salting streets Sunday evening, the city added.
