Ottawa's Byward Market is way wilder than you think

Residents and visitors to many cities around Canada and the world will celebrate urban life, neighborhoods and history this weekend during the "Jane's Walk" events. Jane Jacobs was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a community-based approach to city building.

Ottawa journalist and volunteer tour guide Karen Kelly will lead a tour along the Rideau Canal and talk about the "untold Ottawa." She spoke with Todd Moe about this annual pedestrian-focused event that offers insights into local history, planning and civic engagement through the simple act of walking and observing.

Karen Kelly's tour will be meeting at 2 pm Saturday at the corner of Colonel By and Daly Streets, across from the Westin Hotel. It'll last about 1.5 hours.  Go to full article
