There was a vote on the bylaw to sanction the agreement with the Ottawa Electric Railway Company. The bylaw would do away with ticket fares, replacing them with a straight five cent fare. It also means the company can begin construction on the Laurier Avenue, Bank to Elgin line and the Ottawa East line.
