Historical Society of Ottawa: Lowertown East: Urban Renewal & The Aftermath

November 12, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

Guest speaker: Mark Aubin, Author, ‘Blight’

The 1960s were a time when civic leaders were anxious to bulldoze the past to make way for the modern thruways and dazzling glass towers of the future. What chance did the families and businesses of a working class neighbourhood like Lowertown East have of standing in the way of “progress”?

All are welcome to attend without charge.

Location: Ottawa Public Library, Main Branch, auditorium
