ottawa has again and again fallen into the trap of "hey, we have land, lets build a bunch of houses there" without considering how people will get from these houses to their jobs downtown or how the areas surrounding downtown would change in the future once the suburbs were built.

and now we're stuck in the situation many similarly sized north american cities have found themselves in... endless transit problems and zoning issues with the remaining core dwellers who think their regions should keep the suburban feel despite not being surburbia anymore.
