Peter Raaymakers is the executive director of the Public Transit in Ottawa portal (TransitOttawa.ca), and tries to encourage constructive discussion on transit in the city on that site. He is also the managing editor of the Journal of Public Transit in Ottawa, the community-reviewed journal on pressing transit issues in the city. He regrets the cancellation of the O-Train expansion project in 2006, but is looking forward to riding light-rail in Ottawa some day–whenever that might be. He is also managing editor of Silver Seven (www.SilverSevenSens.com), the Daniel Alfredsson of Ottawa Senators blogs.
