Spring : Spring 14 : Le Breton Aqueduct

The canal is the only piece of greenery left on the enormous Le Breton Flats. Development has been delayed for decades and what construction has occured is just plain ugly. The site is a dream turned nightmare.

"The Vision is to make LeBreton Flats a people-place for the next century; to challenge the developers and decision makers of the future to create an urbane community within the Ottawa downtown where people can live, work, socialize and play. This community will be one of mixed uses, surrounded by open spaces. It will consist of compact neighbourhoods, linked together and to the wider open space network by pathways and pedestrian-friendly streets. The entire area will be supported by highly accessible public transit, to reduce reliance on the automobile."
