Just to give an update, Ottawa has finally approved moving the building
outlines to the open data portal. The person responsible is on vacation and
will be back the 9th of January 2017 and expect it to be live by the end of
that week.

So with data source not being publicly available, are there any other road
blocks that are stopping this import from progressing?
