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

Ouch

Ouch

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

Anderson

Anderson

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.

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

Found this on the re-election website of Kitchissippi Councillor Katherine Hobbs.

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.

Blackburn Hamlet Must Boil Water

This is a release from the City of Ottawa. It would be nice to know in the release what the cause of the contamination is, particularly because the city has a record of being very proud of its water service:

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) has issued a Boil Water Advisory for approximately 200 water users in BlackburnHamlet. The advisory is in effect until further notice.

The advisory is in effect for all the addresses on the following streets:

  • Glen Park Drive

Cowan’s The Choice In Alta Vista

election endorsementAlta Vista is the ward of outgoing planning committee chairman Peter Hume.

Cowan

Cowan

Under his reign on that committee, Hume and his colleagues turned solid zoning into a suggestion and the number of storeys that would be constructed on a new building became a matter of barter rather than sound policy.

On planning committee many of its members were taking campaign donations from the very people on whom they would be making decisions on their developments. It’s a situation that would not be tolerated at any other level of government except in Ontario’s municipalities. The one exception is Toronto (under separate legislation) which banned developer and union donations and appears to have survived.

Hume during his last term took the brave stand of not wanting to ban the aforementioned campaign donations as did Mayor Jim Watson. Hume has endorsed Jean Cloutier who recently stumbled over a controversy in which development industry types hosted a fund-raising gathering for him.

Killer Williams Protects His Pension

Williams

Williams

Serial killer Russell Williams is seeking to protect his $60,000 military pension despite having obtained a lifetime of room-and-board in a solitary cell in Quebec.

This pathetic action is aimed at not allowing a victim an assault by Williams to obtain compensation.

Russell Williams’s military pension is believed to be worth roughly $60,000 a year, which means the killer ex-colonel has received nearly a quarter-million dollars worth of retirement benefits since his career in uniform came to a shocking end in 2010.

At the penitentiary canteen, there is nothing he can’t afford.

Modray Says He’s The Man In Innes

This is an email from Andrew Modray, a candidate in Innes ward, who takes issue with my endorsement of his opponent Teresa Whitmore.

To read the Whitmore endorsement, click here.

Mr. Gray:

I am glad to see you at least took the time to visit my website and learn a bit about me. However, if you had looked closely at the fiscal approach I have compared to my opponents, there is no comparison.

They all want to spend and are promising the sun, moon and the stars once elected.

Pick Perry In Rideau-Rockcliffe

election endorsementCitizen columnist Andrew Cohen’s favourite candidate in Rideau-Rockcliffe Tobi Nussbaum has been a lawyer, public servant and diplomat. Nussbaum has extensive community experience in the Beechwood area.

Perry

Perry

His website is probably the slickest in this campaign. Full of professional video presentations and wonderful design, it is a step up from the average candidate’s fare.

The problem is Nussbaum talks in generalities. He is neither pro-development nor anti-development. That’s nice. So how does he feel about zoning as a suggestion or putting huge towers in single-family neighbourhoods? He talks of mixed-use communities that were to transform neighbourhoods such as Westboro but the reality is too-tall buildings and a streetscape that looks like an outdoor shopping centre.

Andrew Cohen’s Library: Whopper Watch

Citizen freelancer Andrew Cohen in his latest missive doesn’t get how the new central library is the Internet:

(Mayor Jim Watson’s) announcement says nothing about what a library actually means to a community.

Nothing about a library as an architectural statement, a catalyst for remaking a listless downtown. Nothing about a library as a cathedral of curiosity, the most democratic of institutions, where souls are fed and minds are formed.

Are we building a library as an architectural statement or as a library? That’s a pretty expensive whim of architecture.

Take D’Ambrosio In Beacon Hill-Cyrville

election endorsementBeacon Hill-Cyrville ward is a sad testimony to the lack of interest by prominent Ottawans in running for municipal office.

The mayor’s race lacks a big-name candidate beyond the incumbent.

In Beacon Hill-Cyrville, the only recognizable name is that of incumbent Tim Tierney.

The rookie councillor has a platform similar to that of Councillor Keith Egli. It lacks a lot of vision, is big on consultation and lacks vision. It stays away from any controversial municipal issues.
