Off the rails

The construction budget of the new north-south light rail line in Ottawa has soared by almost $125 million.

Seems the cost of building a bridge for the rail line across the Rideau River, sewage upgrades and widening several roads wasn't factored into the original costs.

Mayor Bob Charelli has shrugged off concerns. This indifference may be due to the fact it is not his money, but the money of taxpayers at stake.
