Truckin' through Manotick, not so much across the Vimy Memorial Bridge

Video Comparison


The MVCA is committed to urge the city to lighten the load on the Manotick bridges and provide improved truck access to the new Vimy Memorial Bridge.  We need your support to make this happen.   Rural residents and businesses who have not already done so are asked to make their views known by sending a brief note to their ward councilor at george.darouze@ottawa.ca or scott.moffatt@ottawa.ca and to me at president@manotickVCA.org .
