'Lame duck' council not allowed to sign $3B-deal, but construction expected to start next summer

The contract for the expansion of the city's LRT system will be delayed for a second time now that a so-called "lame duck" council has been returned to City Hall after Monday's election. Originally, council was supposed to approve the $3.3-billion deal for Phase 2 of Ottawa's light-rail system last spring, but in March of this year, the short list of consortiums bidding for east-west and north-south expansions asked for more time to prepare the complex bids.
