The Greenspace Alliance sent a letter to the Mayor and Councillors, and to the KNL developers (Urbandale and Richcraft), calling January 4 a day of shame for Ottawa.

A petition initiated by a concerned citizen was launched on January 14.

Here is the protocol KNL is following, as conveyed by its agent, Jack Stirling.

On January 23, a delegation delivered a petition with over 2,400 names to the offices of the Mayor, Councillor Marianne Wilkinson, Minister Kathryn McGarry, Urbandale and Richcraft.  Media Release.

Councillor Marianne Wilkinson provides updates on her web site,  https://mariannewilkinson.com/knl-expansion-lands/
