Yesterday, the Ottawa Airport Authority made the difficult decision to cut down a pine tree plantation on Hunt Club Road. They argue that the long-term health of these trees, an outlook that isn’t optimistic, cemented their final ruling. A local group called ‘Save Hunt Club Forest’ was unfazed, collecting over 21,000 signatures in an effort to change the tune. We hear from Manuel Costa, the man who helped start the petition, on today’s Ottawa Now.
