Eye Spy: Rideau St features in Spacing.ca

This week our very own Rideau features in Spacing.ca

Rideau Street and really all of Ward12 has a fascinating, long-reaching and rich history.

From the worker’s that built the city and canal, the historic Jewish community alongside many other immigrant influxes, to the diplomats and posh historical families including many Canadian leaders that have all called Rideau-Vanier their home.

Locals work tirelessly to have the neighbourhood’s heritage recognised; often an uphill battle as grand homes and historic businesses are demolished. Hopefully the recent coverage by Spacing Magazine will help to preserve further some of our phenomenal history.  Read and enjoy the article here!
