RBC says it plans to close its branch in Metcalfe this Fall, the lone bank branch that is accessible for local residents. Currently located on Victoria Street, the bank says it will be consolidating the Metcalfe branch into a newly-built location at Bank and Findlay Creek. It’s location on Victoria Street would shut its doors on October 14. For seniors in Metcalfe, it’s a move that presents a massive issue, according to Robert Fowler. He stresses that many residents still use cash to pay their bills and some residents can’t even drive. He joins Kristy Cameron on Ottawa Now.
