Take Richmond-Byron routes off the table for good

OTTAWA – Now that the Mayor and the City of Ottawa have acknowledged that western rail routes that run along the Richmond-Byron corridor would ruin Byron Linear Park and divide the community, Neighbours for Smart Western Rail wants those options taken off the table for good.
