Animating the Rideau Canal
With the snow finally gone, runners, cyclists and strollers are back on the Rideau Canal pathways. Soon the pop-up patios and the 8 Locks' Flat restaurant will return as well. But some Queen's University planning students have been dreaming up even bigger ideas for adding life to the waterway, from Hogs Back to the Ottawa River.
Their 200-page report "Animating the Rideau Canal" is the culmination of a project in land-use planning. Jeff Nadeau and Fraser McLeod are two of the students who contributed, and they joined us with their ideas from Kingston.
