Local Ottawa Rideau-Vanier city council candidate Marc Aubin visited damaged homes today. Marc listened to the concerns of the homeowners and expressed his support. Marc was part of the Bruyère Street Task Force that originally opposed the condo development. You can see pictures of the damage here.
Those came down so fast. Apparently these were heritage homes that the Lowertown Community Association tried to protect. There is a great PDF article I found in the Cathcart Muse prepared in 2011 by Marc Aubin and Nancy Chenier. In it you can see the images of the homes which were destroyed and read up about their past occupants. Didn’t know I lived in a specific area called ‘The Wedge” and that this place has so much history!
