Mayor Watson wants council to spend money on studying Barrhaven LRT

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, June 13, 2018

Make room, Kanata. Barrhaven has become part the conversation for a Stage 3 LRT extension.

Up until Wednesday, Mayor Jim Watson had consistently positioned Kanata as the obvious next stop for LRT once the first two stages of light rail are constructed.

But the mayor, who’s also running for re-election in the October municipal vote, said on Wednesday it will be up to a future council to decide which suburb will be next to receive rail service, potentially leaving the other community with a serious case of train envy.
