In my opinion, Ottawa is lagging hard behind similar sized cities such as Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg.
All these cities have full length LRT systems, new or at least substantially functional major sporting/entertainment infrastructure, and a thriving business sector.
In my opinion Ottawa is falling behind, despite its higher population; honestly this is a problem with the city's mindset. I have never in my life seen NIMBYism as intense as here in this city.
And you get this from what exactly?
