Ottawa city council has unanimously agreed to issue Rideau Transit Group (RTG) a formal notice of default over ongoing problems with the Confederation Line, an unprecedented move for the city.
"This is a strong escalation," said Mayor Jim Watson following a three-hour closed-door meeting Monday. "Plainly stated, we're not getting what we paid for."
The notice of default will be issued Tuesday. RTG will then have until March 31 to provide a "credible and realistic" time frame to fix the issues, although Watson noted "time is running out" for the consortium.https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/council-rtg-formal-notice-default-1.5491321?ref=mobilerss&cmp=newsletter_CBC%20Ottawa_727_4597
