LRT gremlins don't take weekend off: 'I'm angry, too,' transit commission boss says

By Normand Provencher, Ottawa Citizen, November 9, 2019

Embattled transit commission boss Allan Hubley says he’s getting “totally frustrated” with continuing glitches on the city’s brand-new LRT system and doesn’t blame riders for being angry.

But Hubley also fears that, if officials don’t get a handle on a number of issues soon, irreparable harm will be done to people’s acceptance of the fast transit system.

“I’m angry, too,” the Kanata South councillor said Saturday afternoon, hours after the system was sent into recovery mode when a train failed near Parliament Station, causing delays for two hours. It was the ninth consecutive day of problems for LRT.
