I ♥ the NCC

I know some people will disagree, but I greatly appreciate the work of Ottawa's National Capital Commission. They may be unelected and unaccountable, but thanks to them (and a blocked off and overgrown roadway), I have a ½ hour commute to and from work that is truly idyllic.

Now me, I'm lazy. I'll find any excuse not to exercise. However, this bike path is just too nice for me to avoid using. (It helps that it's all downhill on the way to work too.)

Ottawa may be rightly criticized in other areas, but I think the NCC has had a very positive effect on the public green space in our city, and we're lucky to have it.
