In 2018, city hall politicians spent more than $500 million on Light Rail Infrastructure while companies such as Airbnb and Uber saw growth in the city thereby their sales went up.
It is unclear how and why citizens use public transportation when there is lack of oversight. Perhaps somewhere down the line Ottawa politicians will become generous in a way that they would take less money through taxes from the people. This will not likely happen since money borrowed need to be paid back.
We are indeed the slaves of the city. Don’t expect money in your pocket.
