Gatineau's mayor says the most important thing is that his city's new tramway, which will extend into Ottawa's downtown, gets completed.
Maxime Pednaud-Jobin says Gatineau residents looking to commute into Ottawa's core aren't as concerned about which exact route the train takes.
Of the two proposed options, the City of Ottawa prefers a tunnel under Sparks Street. The NCC, however, prefers the cheaper option of surface-level trains on Wellington Street.
"The fact that the NCC took a stand, I think is a good step for the project to go forward," said Mayor Pednaud-Jobin. "We'll be satisfied whether it's Option A or Option B; what we want is the project to go ahead because we need that, as a region."
Because Gatineau residents will only be travelling into and out of Ottawa, Pedneaud-Jobin says he doesn't really have much to say on which route is better.
