Eye Spy: Residents Come out for Pedestrian Memorial


Cllr Diane Holmes

Spring was in the air as the Ottawa community gathered at Rideau and Waller this afternoon to witness the memorial unveiling for Yvonne Hendrikx – killed by a double-trailer truck at this intersection in February. Trucks roared around the gathering and Councillor Diane Holmes who worked with WalkOttawa to organise the commemorative “Walker” at times struggled to be heard. It is good to see a marker indicating the significance of this incident. Hopefully it will remind City Hall of the urgency required to ensure this tragedy is not again repeated.
