After a one-day delay, the Rideau Transit Group was slated to give the City of Ottawa a new handover date for the light rail project on Thursday.

Mayor Jim Watson has been quite vocal about March 31, or the end of this year's first quarter, as a start date for the new LRT Confederation Line.

But the news of another delay saw some people questioning how long it would actually be before the trains start running in the capital, including councillor Jeff Leiper, who tweeted a tongue-in-cheek prediction.
