Let’s Animate Ottawa: Cohen

The National Capital Commission and Citizen columnist Andrew Cohen would like to “animate” Ottawa’s waterways. Sounds like something Walt Disney might do. Would it go something like the above?


Citizen columnist Andrew Cohen (otherwise known as the chairman of the Tobi Nussbaum for Mayor in 2018 Committee) is out tub-thumping in his column again for his favourite councillor-elect in Rideau-Rockcliffe.

Do we have to listen to four years of this kind of stuff? Why the bodies of the losing candidates in 2014 aren’t even cold yet.

Then later in his column, Cohen, urban expert, delves into what this city needs. You know the urbanist Cohen is always critiquing Ottawa as a dump with no vision that can’t hold a candle to other capital cities.

Mizrahi Goes To OMB

It’s official.

Mizrahi Development Group is going to the Ontario Municipal Board to appeal the City of Ottawa’s rejection of amendments to the Official Plan and the zoning bylaw to, among other things, allow a 12-storey building at 1451 and 1445 Wellington Street (at the corner of Island Park Drive and Wellington on the old Proshine site).

The height exceeds city zoning of six and nine stories on two lots there.

The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Jan. 19 at Ottawa City Hall, Keefer Room, 110 Laurier Ave. West.

Five days have been set aside for the hearing.

No Hard Feelings: Canning

Here’s a rather generous email that Somerset candidate Martin Canning sent out to his supporters after his loss in this week’s municipal election. We hope that other such notes are this conciliatory:

What a day.

What a week.

What a year.

When we started this campaign I knew that it would be tough.

We knew we were the underdogs. We were challenging the status quo.

But we didn’t let that stop us.

Thank God And Greyhound You’re Gone

With luck, soon-to-be-ex-councillor Katherine Hobbs will be playing this song on her Buick’s eight-track when she goes to, say, Toronto. Or on the bus wearing her Sony Walkman. Yes, Thank God and Greyhound by Roy Clark.

Well Kitchissippi has at least 7,557 residents who aren’t stupid.

That’s the number who voted for Hintonburg community activist Jeff Leiper who won the ward this week in the municipal election. They were the people who did their homework and discovered a thinking candidate who has their best interests at heart.

Rob Ford Is Getting Pathetic



Councillor-elect Rob Ford is truly getting pathetic.

He’s had alcohol problems, behaviour problems, he hangs out with nasty people, he’s overweight, he’s embarrassed his city and this nation, he’s had drug problems and now he has cancer.

Yet he carries on in the political world when he should be smelling the roses on the way. Who knows how his cancer will turn out? Wouldn’t he rather spend this time with people he loves?

The man truly doesn’t know how to quit, be it food or drugs or politics.

Watson’s Post-Win Comments: Top 10 List



So we’ve got a new, same-old mayor today.

Yes, Jim Watson was re-elected to another four years of brilliant legislation. Thank goodness. If we lose Watson, who’s left to satirize?

Look, it’s like this … The Bulldog needs Jim Watson. Mike Maguire wouldn’t have been half as fun. Watson is up for all the goofy things that mayors do, except perhaps administration.

But no matter. What is important is that we have lots of grist for The Bulldog. Ottawa might suffer but The Bulldog will profit. I love ya, man.

Debate, Discuss, Chat: Bulldog Live Blog

bulldogliveblogHere we go … one full day of live blogging for Ottawa’s municipal election.

cleeseThis will be a bit of a grind but The Bulldog would really like to get into some debates and discussions about the election, the campaign that led up to it and its implications for the city.

Use the comment box at the bottom of the post and I’ll try to address these comments in the main body of the live blog. Of course the blog pythonwill become more hectic as the polls close and the results are released.

Still The Bulldog thinks this might be a very interesting day.

So start commenting about the election. Tell us what you think.

So let’s start the debate. Remember to put your comments in the comment box on the end of the post. We’ll take it from there.

10:54 @Urban Vortex: Purgatory? Hell, methinks.

10: 32: @Linda: All very good points. A very considered comment. Unfortunately Watson will continue to run a council without debate. That’s not good democracy. But it’s good for him.

10:28: @GiGi: Leiper will serve the community much better than the incumbent. The community needs some rational planning. I’m afraid his protestations are likely to fall on deaf ears on council.

10:11: I’ll be hanging around here to respond to any comments you might have. Thank you for your magnificent support of The Bulldog today. For readership, it’s been The Bulldog’s best day ever … and that includes its time on ottawacitizen.com. In fact, its numbers regularly outstrip the Dawg’s days at the Citizen. Many apologies for all the typos. I’m typing as fast as I can and have to admit I’m getting pretty pooped. There, I’ve made all my excuses. Have a good evening.

10:05: Congratulations to Rogers for doing such an extensive and solid job of covering the election. My friend Sandra Blaikie is the best broadcast journalist in the city and she’s not working in the field. A shame. She’s a fabulous babe. When do we go for dinner, Blaikie?She even made Randall Denley look somewhat good. And boo to the traditional stations for not doing their community duty. They are doing their best to make municipal politics insignificant. So much for their supposed interest in the community.

Hobbs Voted Most Likely To Lose: Poll Results



Good morning voters.

Here are the results from Sunday’s Bulldog Poll on which councillors are most likely to lose.

Normally The Bulldog would ask which councillor would win, but the “losing” way of dealing with it tends to eliminate ballot-box stuffing.

Our friend Katherine Hobbs, the Kitchissippi councillor, leads the pack of councillors who are likely to be looking for work on Tuesday.

Here are the poll results:

Can You Say Mayor Maguire? Poll Results



What? Are you serious?

Despite all indications to the contrary, Bulldog readers say in Sunday’s Bulldog Poll that candidate Mike Maguire will win today’s mayoral tilt.

No doubt this will come as a surprise, even to Maguire.

And what does this say about The Bulldog?

Despite the fact that the proprietor is usually perceived as a white-wine-drinking, tax-and-spend centrist or liberal, The Bulldog has been invaded by the conservatives.

Oh no, run for your life.

The Bulldog’s Endorsements

ballotTwenty-three wards and a mayor later, The Bulldog is the only serious Ottawa publication doing endorsements to the best of our knowledge.

One Ottawa publication says it’s not doing endorsements (after decades of doing them) because they unfairly influence voters. What that publication really means is that staff has been cut back so far that it doesn’t feel it can do endorsements.

Well The Bulldog is a pretty slimmed-down operation too and it found a way to do endorsements. That said the endorsement journalist (who also acts as the circulation director, editor, technical department, photo department, public editor, letters editor and myriad other roles) found a way to finish the task.
