Do you have any ideas for a name for the Rideau Canal pedestrian bridge?
Recent reports say “Nelson Mandela Bridge” and “Corktown Bridge” (recognizing Ottawa’s Irish heritage) are in the running. There’s an online petition for the Corktown name, with 500 signatures so far.
We prefer some of these more colourful suggestions from the Elgin Street Irregulars blog:
- Le Pont Bridge
- Castor Bridge
- Pont of Order or Talking Pont (in honour of the NCC)
- Rainbow Bridge
- By-Ped Bridge
- Justin Trudeau Bridge
