OTTAWA, Dec. 18, 2018 /CNW/ - I grew up here in Ottawa and it remains my home. I have been actively involved in the redevelopment of the LeBreton Flats since 2014 because I know how important this redevelopment is to local residents and Canadians.
Let me be clear, I am committed to moving this project forward. The vision we've brought forward is the right one. I will work with the NCC, the City of Ottawa, and the community at large to advance solutions that will make this project a reality, and avoid losing these important lands for another generation.
As has been reported, Trinity is the subject of litigation from our partner, Capital Sports Management Inc., a company which is wholly owned by Eugene Melnyk. That claim will be vigorously defended. A Statement of Defence and Counterclaim has been filed in the Ontario Superior Court. I will not say anything more about the litigation while it is before the Courts.
