City committee fails to approve direction of transit plan
After 14 hours of debate, a joint city committee examining the future of transit in the capital failed to approve the direction of any plan.
The committee could not agree on how to move forward with a $1.7 billion plan presented by city staff, which included building a downtown tunnel and light rail from Blair Road in the east to Tunney's Pasture.
The committee also voted against a few alternative plans, including one that called for building light rail on Carling Avenue.
The transit debate is now scheduled to go before council next week.
