A year after the 'Freedom Convoy' protest shut down Wellington Street, a city of Ottawa committee has voted to reopen it to cars for now.
The city's transportation committee voted unanimously to reopen the street to traffic "as soon as it is operationally feasible," but no sooner than March 1. The vote is subject to approval by city council.
..."There is no reason to return Wellington to cars, and there's every reason to leave it open for people," William van Geest of Ecology Ottawa told councillors.
