Community activist Thierry Harris and his neighbours call out Councillor Mathieu Fleury over damaged homes

Rideau-Vanier Councillor Mathieu Fleury along with inspectors from the City of Ottawa got an earful as they visited homes that suffered extensive damaged after experiencing vibrations, pile driving and other construction processes from a neighbouring condo construction site. Residents told the Councillor they were fed up with the lack of action and leadership on the file.

STILL SHAKING

Multiple homes in Ottawa are left with severe damage after experiencing strong vibrations and various construction processes from an adjacent condo development site. The construction work included excavationsheet piling, dewatering, drilling underneath the properties and shoring and took place almost daily for several months. The homes’ conditions continue to deteriorate as construction progresses. Residents says they are worried. Work on the condo development is set to continue for another year.
