‘We will not be intimidated:’ Harper



This is a release from the Prime Minister’s Office:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today delivered the following remarks:

“My fellow Canadians, for the second time this week there has been a brutal and violent attack on our soil.

“Today, our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Corporal Nathan Cirillo of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada.

“Corporal Cirillo was killed today – murdered in cold blood – as he provided a ceremonial Honour Guard at Canada’s National War Memorial.

Ottawa Together

flagWe’re all a little shaken today that our gentle city has seen such violence.

A soldier at guard over the a fallen warrior becomes a fallen soldier himself. A shooter is gunned down in the halls of Parliament. Our elected representatives are terrorized in the symbol of Canadian democracy.

Something similar happened in Boston at the marathon in 2013 when death came to that peaceful event and citizens were locked down in their homes.

Then came the signs, not just in Boston but across the continent, Boston Strong. Those signs even showed in Boston baseball’s most hated rival park, Yankee Stadium. Sweet Caroline became a national obsession.

The Real Nature of Terror

Here’s one, among many today, of the worst nightmares of security officials in Canada.

In the past, terrorists have focused on hard targets such as airports that have very high security.

But the scariest part of this terrible incident, which is still very fluid at this point, is the reports of locking down the Rideau Centre near Parliament Hill.

Police and security officials can’t protect the whole country. Recently a terrorist of some kind tried to run over two soldiers in Montreal with a car. One soldier died. That’s the kind of unorthodox terror threat that officials simply cannot defend against, unless by human intelligence.

Watson ‘Shocked’ By Shootings

This is a statement from Mayor Jim Watson concerning the shooting incidents near or on Parliament Hill:

As with all Ottawa residents and all Canadians, I am shocked and saddened by what has happened in the last hour here in the nation’s capital.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those injured.

Ottawa Paramedics and Fire Services provided first response to those injured and Ottawa Police Services are engaged with other law enforcement agencies at this time in pursuit of the criminal or criminals who have carried out this vicious and unwarranted attack.

The Maguire Boost That Never Was



The Bulldog on Tuesday decided after much hand-wringing that the website would not endorse candidate Mike Maguire for mayor.

In fact, early on Tuesday morning The Bulldog was going to read like what is posted below. In that incarnation of the mayoral endorsement, The Bulldog was backing Mike Maguire as the best of two bad alternatives, the other being Mayor Jim Watson.

Below are the relevant parts of The Bulldog endorsement that was removed early Tuesday and that supported Maguire. In fact, The Bulldog could not support a candidate who doesn’t reflect the views of this website. Neither Watson nor Maguire, The Bulldog feels, are suitable for Ottawa’s top post.

Gray, Snow Look At Kitchissippi Ward

cfraCFRA Afternoon Edition host Rob Snow and The Bulldog’s Ken Gray take a look at one of the most contested wards in Monday’s Ottawa municipal election … Kitchissippi.

Here incumbent Katherine Hobbs is sawing off with former Hintonburg Community Asssociation chief Jeff Leiper with Michelle Reimer in the fight as well.

Leiper appears to be in the lead but what might save Hobbs is the fact that she has two major opponents who might split the opposition vote. That’s happened before in this highly politicized ward.

Here’s Gray and Snow on CFRA:

Petition Aimed At Ending Bus Detour

Things are getting tough in Kitchissippi ward.

This anonymous letter is being sent to homes in the ward concerning the plan to run the Transitway bus detour due to light-rail construction on Scott Street.

This issue is obviously a weak point for Kitchissippi Councillor Katherine Hobbs because the hated (in the ward at least) of the bus detour came about on the councillor’s watch.

Somebody is working hard to defeat the councillor.

Here’s the letter:

The Bulldog Backs No One For Mayor

election endorsementLet’s give credit where credit is due and discuss what Mayor Jim Watson has done right.

It won’t take long.

Watson has not embarrassed his office by making wild comments on a wide assortment of issues as his predecessor did. The office is treated with respect and good on Watson for that.

Watson has been a great communicator going to public gathering after public gathering in an effort to reach the people. More likely given that it is always about Jim, it’s a perpetual election campaign.

Still, he is out there. As one public servant said, Watson is a great retail politician but on the wholesale side … administration and public policy … not so much.

Mayoral Choice To Be Released

election endorsementBy this time of the morning, Bulldog readers, god bless you all, would have usually sat down, pulled out their tablets, had a coffee, a



piece of grapefruit, a bowl of corn flakes and read the commandments of the aforementioned canine.

However most of you, one hopes, will have noticed that there is nothing new on The Bulldog this morning. There are two reasons for this.

First, The Bulldog had a very successful, though entirely too invasive, procedure performed on him by some wonderful people who did it without a twinge of pain.

You’re Wrong, Bulldog: Campaign Chief



Below is an email sent to The Bulldog by Tobi Nussbaum’s campaign manager James Anderson in Rideau-Rockcliffe ward.

Of course, Anderson’s job is to defend Nussbaum, a role he does very well.

But he should note on his website that I drew conclusions from Nussbaum’s platform. With as many candidates as are running in the Oct. 27 election, with respect, I cannot read every press release the Nussbaum campaign publishes. I would never get these endorsements finished.

So my advice, if you are still listening, is that if you have important policy releases, you should put them in your candidate’s platform, not buried among press releases with headlines that don’t relate to the main issue using about tiny six-point type for the aforementioned irrelevant headlines.

You’re an editor. You should know that.

We’ll Miss You Katie Hobbs



Oh that Katie Hobbs. She’s got one slick website.

Why does she need to say what her “sole motivation” is?

“I ran for councillor to help people in my community. It is my sole motivation.”

The Hidden Municipal Party Agenda

This is a comment from avid Bulldog reader Ron Benn looking at the role party workers play in the municipal election:

As we contemplate the question of why some candidates attract more funding than others, consider the role of the individuals who are actively involved in federal and provincial riding associations, during municipal election campaigns.

Whether they wish to acknowledge it or not, most of the high profile and successful candidates are members of political parties.

For example, Mark Taylor was part of Jim Watson’s staff when Jim Watson was the MPP for Ottawa West Nepean. Alex Cullen is very well connected with the NDP.
