Ottawa's Shoreline ... Built from Garbage?

Afternoon Series
Nepean Bay 1962; City of Ottawa Archives, CA-8684.

Guest Speaker

Dave Allston, Author, "The Kitchissippi Museum" blog


Running out of landfill space? Why not dump it in the river! The 1950s and 1960s was an era of all-important progress and little concern for "environmental assessments". Learn about the decision-making process that led to much of the Ottawa River shoreline from Mechanicsville through LeBreton Flats being built from our garbage.

Learn about this story and more as Dave Allston takes a look back at some of the major alterations to Ottawa's landscape in the years following Jacques Greber's sweeping recommendations.
