Municipal Byelections Carry Real Costs

ottawa logoApparently the issues raised in The Bulldog post on Kanata South Councillor Allan Hubley resonated around Ottawa City Hall, even on Sunday when the article was released.

There has been some concern about Hubley making noises about running federally next year while vying for a council seat now. Now it must be emphasized that Hubley has not said he will run federally, but he hasn’t ruled it out either.

election endorsementThis is vintage Katherine Hobbs.

The Kitchissippi councillor recently came out in support of a 12-storey mammoth condo project at Island Park Drive and Wellington Street.

Leiper

Leiper

Just one problem.
