A Cool 51 Days - Ottawa 26 01 09

Protestors met at noon at The Peace Flame on the grounds of Parliament Hill a few days ago to protest Ottawa's OC Transpo transit strike. After 52 days, finally the City of Ottawa and the transit union reps have agreed to binding arbitration to resolve this lengthy strike. City council will, most likely approve the deal tomorrow. Buses are expected to start rolling soon after with priority given to the Transitway (bus only roads) buses. OC Transpo has many drivers but few serviceable buses presently. Express buses are to be added later with full service expected in perhaps a month. (Many Thanks Farfando for your title idea!)
