Economy

Business opportunities – products and services needed

Investment opportunities – good returns during unstable economic times

New economic model

A fully transitioned Ottawa would be renewably powered. Most staple foods would be grown locally and organically, efficiently using rooftops and NCR and greenbelt land, the latest hydroponic and aquaponic technology, subterranean heat sinks in passive solar and hoop greenhouses for year round growing giving Ottawa food security, fresh healthy produce and numerous local jobs.

Imagine clean air and quiet streets as we transition to electric buses, light rail and new forms of transport like electric pedal hybrid solar-recharging micro cars, and hyperloop trains travelling twice the speed of airlines. Living comfortably AND sustainably is 100% possible.
