Ottawa Citizen >> Councillors 'disappointed' after Sally Ann shelter vote, opponents vow to keep fighting

Opponents of the Salvation Army’s proposed “mega-shelter” on Montreal Road say they’re prepared to take their fight to the Ontario Municipal Board, if the project gets the green light in a council vote Wednesday.

Drew Dobson, head of the group SOS Vanier, whose members came out in numbers through three days of impassioned public hearings on the proposal, said he believes they have a “winnable case.”

The proposal calls for a 9,600-square-metre, 350-bed facility to be constructed at 333 Montreal Road in Vanier, with a shelter, day programs, medical care, addiction services and administrative space.
