Negotiations between the City of Ottawa and Cadillac Fairview Corporation over the sale of the main downtown library are going slowly. Officials involved in the negotiations say several issues must be clarified before it reaches city council.
“There are more questions than answers at this stage,” says Elisabeth Arnold, city councillor whose ward includes the library. “We want to make sure the level of service is maintained and the library is not negatively affected in any way. We want to make sure the sale of a public facility is a change for the better not for the worse.”
