Should parts of the ByWard Market be closed off to cars?

By Giacomo Panico, CBC News Ottawa, July 28, 2018

Should motorists be banned from using certain streets in the ByWard Market?

The executive director of Ottawa Markets would like to see that happen.

"People are certainly getting away from their cars a little bit, around the world, and particularly [when it comes to] public spaces and public markets," Jeff Darwin told CBC Radio's In Town And Out.

Ottawa Markets is the organization in charge of municipal buildings in the market area. It's looking into the idea of keeping cars off William Street and ByWard Market Square — the two adjacent streets to the market building — on weekends.
