CBC >> Ottawa city councillors want clarity around LRT contract

Posted Feb. 8, 2018

Coun. Tobi Nussbaum said he was also taken aback to learn that RTG would not be on the hook financially for the delay. 

"I think I was as surprised as everybody else was in light of the fact that the briefing material, which the public had received over the last couple months — and a lot of the public statements — had suggested that if the deadline beyond May 24 were passed that there would be a fine levied at a million dollars."  

Earlier this week, mayor Jim Watson said the city would impose penalties on RTG for delays, but Nussbaum said councillors need clarity around what exact operational costs are covered.

"I'm asking staff for them to identify, in the contract, where those provisions are," he said.
