Posted By Kanina Holmes on Mar 9, 2017 | 0 comments

Streetcars were a way of life for many growing up, but were retired in Ottawa with the rise of busing transportation. Still, some community volunteers are looking to make them shine again by restoring an old streetcar just in time for Canada’s 150th birthday. The Twenty-Fifth Hour’s Emily Haws, Taylor Blewett, and Brooke Peloquin bring us the story.


This documentary was produced by Brooke Peloquin, Taylor Blewett and Emily Haws.
