The Case of Lansdowne 2.0 in Ottawa and "moves away from solely air rights"
Bill Teron, one of Ottawa’s most highly respected developers and known as the “father of Kanata" made the following comment back in 2007 in response to the controversy over giving up lands in Lansdowne Park to developers and removing community space without a public process..."remember very carefully you are touching on public trust… the public good has to be enormous” (Ottawa Citizen October 27, 2007).
First class piece, Neil. Many people should read this and I hope you can distribute it widely. Following LRT debacle, Lansdowne 2.0 is now another case study of public communication and public policymaking malpractice.
