About this Event

The Free Transit Ottawa Campaign Launch will be fun-filled evening where we plan to share our priorities going forward, how to get involved, and celebrate how far we've come!

Join us for an evening of poetry, music, and conversation as we celebrate the launch of our new campaign for fare-free transit in off-peak hours, new and improved transit services across the city, and democratic transit decision making. We will provide more information about these demands, as well as how you can get involved in our struggle to win them, at this event!

The event will feature poetry by Just Jamaal and music by Lil’ Claire, Nick Bury, Roby Ryan & Friends, and Himig Masa. We will also hear from speakers on the front lines of the movement for improved transit in Ottawa including, Shawn Menard (City Councillor for Capital Ward), Stuart MacKay (Board Member of the Ottawa Transit Riders), Clint Crabtree (President of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279), and Kayla Charette (Co-Chair of Free Transit Ottawa).

Special guests and entertainment include:

  • Lil' Claire – Ottawa Rapper
  • JustJamaal ThePoet
  • Himig Masa – Folk-Rock Group
  • Ottawa City Councillor Shawn Menard
  • Stuart Mackay – Ottawa Transit Riders
  • Clint Crabtree – President ATU 279
  • Nick Bury – Singer
  • Rob & Friends – Activist Choir

Accessibility: The Avant-Garde Bar is not accessible. There are 2 steps down at the entrance and 2 steps down at the back of the venue.

Unfortunately, due to affordability reasons, we were unable to secure an accessible space to host our campaign launch. We will have people available who can provide assistance if we have a name and know what time they are arriving. Please send us an email at freetransitottawa@gmail.com to arrange this with us in advance. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We look forward to seeing you there!

In Solidarity,

Free Transit Ottawa
