Renaming the Harmer bridge to the Jackie Holzman Bridge

The City of Ottawa is proposing to rename the Harmer bridge as the Jackie Holzman Bridge.

Mrs. Holzman is a passionate accessibility advocate, devoting her efforts to improve housing and employment opportunities for people with disabilities. She was the first Jewish woman and third woman to become Mayor of Ottawa. She worked tirelessly during her time at City Hall to bridge differences between communities and to unite residents around important issues. Mrs. Holzman continues to improve the community, co-founding Compassionate Ottawa to help people live as long and as well as they can.

To submit written comments about the proposal or to get more information, please email or call 613-580-2424, extension 27551. The deadline for written comments is Thursday, March 26, 2020.
