Choice for transportation chair 'Watson Club' at work, councillor says

By Kate Porter, CBC News Ottawa, February 4, 2020

Coun. Tim Tierney's tentative appointment to the helm of Ottawa's transportation committee is already coming under fire as another attempt to shut downtown councillors out of the mayor's inner circle.

Tierney, the councillor for Beacon Hill-Cyrville, will replace Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais, who stepped down from the committee chair's role to run in the provincial byelection in Orléans.

The transportation committee oversees the city's roads, sidewalks and cycling infrastructure, as well as parking and long-term transit network planning.
