We released a vision document of what Lansdowne Park could and should be (read it here). After release of this document, new improvements did come to the park: car traffic was restricted between Aberdeen Square and Aberdeen Pavilion, and new seating areas and proper shading to be added to the square (read more about that here).
The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG)--the P3 consortium that has partnered with the City to develop and operate much of Lansdowne Park--almost had the city agree to a handover of the publicly-managed portions of Lansdowne Park. Our office joined with residents and campaigned against this proposal (link), and we succeeded. Read more about those efforts here.
During the pandemic OSEG requested various changes to the contract with the city that amounted to a bailout (link). We put together a financial analysis demonstrating how further concessions to our P3 partner represented a bad deal for taxpayers (read that here). We also campaigned against this package (link). Unfortunately, the package passed, though we did succeed in making some changes to it (link).
