    IMO they should close QE all the way back to Prince of Wales. It would make Commissioners Park and the canal path so much more pleasant

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    Kichi Zībī Mīkan, formerly the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway, will close between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., from Vimy Place to Carling Avenue, during the same period.

    The NCC, which manages the scenic parkways, began reserving a portion of Queen Elizabeth Driveway for pedestrians and cyclists during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    It was responding to calls for more public space for people to exercise while remaining physically distanced, and the popularity of the initiative inspired its expansion, the Crown corporation said.

    “We look forward to continuing to collaborate with our partners and stakeholders to create spaces and experiences that make our region a wonderful place to live and visit.”

    The NCC said according to its recent online survey, both tourists and residents are “highly satisfied” with the active-use parkways during warmer months.

    But the program became a point of contention last year when Ottawa Mayor Mark Sutcliffe and Nussbaum sparred publicly over the initiative.


    The original article contains 347 words, the summary contains 141 words. Saved 59%. I’m a bot and I’m open source!
