Rideau Rams save a piece of Ottawa history

Read the full Ottawa Citizen May 23, 2014 article and view the video

"The Rideau High School shop students have since September spent about 1,300 class hours helping an existing group of volunteers, by fashioning wood and metal items, such as hinges, doors and window frames, for the restoration of the 600-series streetcar."

Rideau’s involvement has been a boon to the restoration group, but the restoration project has benefits beyond learning metal- and woodworking skills for the students.
