Sports Feds open bids for 'major attraction' in renewed bid for land project in Ottawa
Feds waiving normal EI rules for British Columbians left jobless by extreme flooding
British Columbians displaced or left jobless due to extreme flooding in much of the province should immediately apply for employment insurance benefits — even if they wouldn't normally be eligible, the federal employment minister said Sunday. Carla Qualtrough said the federal government is waiving the requirement for applicants to show a record of employment, recognizing that it may be difficult for many to obtain the proper documentation under current circumstances. "Obviously it could be very difficult in these times to get that piece of particular document," she said.
OTTAWA — A federal agency is swinging open the doors for companies to propose one or more attractions to anchor a major land development project near the capital's downtown.
The sprawling 29-hectare site known as LeBreton Flats sits on the Ottawa River just to the west of the city's downtown core and has been the subject of development plans for decades.
The National Capital Commission is taking another jab at anchoring the site with entertainment venues, including a "major events centre" slated for a 2.56-hectare parcel that is almost the size of four soccer fields.

In the bid document, the head of the commission writes that a major events centre could be a concert hall or a sports arena, which just so happened to be proposed a few years ago before a legal feud felled the idea.
Applications are due by the end of February and the commission says it will evaluate options through to April.
LeBreton Flats was a working-class and industrial neighbourhood until the federal government expropriated and razed it in the 1960s.

The most recent idea was for a $4.1-billion plan that included an arena for the Ottawa Senators so the National Hockey League team could move from its longtime suburban home.
The deal fell through two years ago when the partnership between team owner Eugene Melnyk and land developer John Ruddy ended in a legal dispute.
Along with a major events centre, the commission is also seeking ideas for a smaller venue on a half-hectare site that hugs an inlet of the Ottawa River.
In the document, commissioner CEO Tobi Nussbaum writes that the agency wants "innovative and financially sound concepts that could capture our interest" for both parcels up for bids.
The bid document also notes that ideas will also be evaluated on "opportunities for partnerships and benefits" for the Algonquin Nation.
