Our Mission

Sustainable Solutions/Solutions durables (SSD) believes that a real solution must be found to the long standing and unacceptable situation of 2500+ inter-provincial heavy trucks per day transiting downtown Ottawa. Furthermore it is our position that it would be unacceptable to build a new bridge across the Ottawa River (estimated to cost more than $1.1B) that does not provide a solution to this interprovincial truck problem.

Our goal is to raise awareness of this issue and build consensus among communities in the NCR to urge governments at all levels to properly evaluate all potential solutions to this truck problem and not just new bridges alone. In particular, we support the initiative of the City of Ottawa and the Government of Ontario in conducting a feasibility study of a downtown Ottawa tunnel.
