Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson says the city will be prioritizing climate change and focusing on economic growth in areas such as Kanata North in 2020.

He gave his annual State of the City address at Ottawa City Hall on Wednesday. The nearly hour-long address included laying out the city's new official plan.

Watson said the city's ecological and economic goals will help put Ottawa in the spotlight, adding that Kanata North businesses are already "bursting at the seems."
