Ottawa City Councillor Riley Brockington says the time is right to start exploring a possible street name change for Trump Avenue.

The River Ward representative tells CityNews, Monday, January 25, that he's been receiving inquiries from residents for "many years," so he decided to hold a consultation session about the name change on Saturday, January 23.

"Now that the former president has left office, I was willing to proceed with consultations," says Brockington.

Trump Avenue is located in Ottawa's Central Park neighbourhood, just south of Carlington, west of Merivale Road.

A post on the Ottawa Central Park Community Facebook page says residents on Trump Avenue are being asked to vote on the name change, and if a majority agree to go ahead with it, then Brockington will continue the process of renaming the street.
