For those of you who were disappointing about the placement for the new Civic Hospital; no need to worry, the Hospital board said nope.
It was another controversial recommendation, many feel that the Experimental Farm is the best place for the new Hospital.
The Ottawa Hospital also had its eyes on 24 hectares of Central Experimental Farm lands, which are right across the street from its existing location.
Hospital board chair James McCracken said the Tunney’s site was unacceptable because of the cost of moving federal government workers to new workplaces and demolishing the office buildings that are there now to make way for the new Civic campus.
Looks like this process won’t be an easy one, but when the NCC and several levels of Gov’t are involved, are they ever?
