Cullen Releases Full Campaign Funding Report

Bay ward candidate Alex Cullen, a long-time opponent of corporate and union funding of municipal candidate campaigns, has released this full report on a study he did on the issue.

Here is an excerpt from the report:

Money plays an important role in electing candidates to office. For the past 3 municipal elections in Ottawa the overwhelming majority of successful candidates for City Council have raised and spent the most. And a significant portion of those campaign revenues that contribute to electoral success comes from that corporate sector that does business with City Hall.

Where Was Watson On Ebola Virus?

watson.rapids

As officials are testing a person at The Ottawa Hospital, Mayor Jim Watson is tweeting this.

So the City of Ottawa releases information that a person at the Ottawa Hospital is being tested for the Ebola virus.

That’s the time when a serious mayor gets to the office, talks with the officials about what has happened, what is being done, when will we have a definite answer on the tests, and assures the people of Ottawa that medical and city personnel are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of the community.

Watson should say I’m keeping an eye on the situation and will update you with new information when it comes in.

We Need A New Stephen Blais

election endorsementCouncillor Stephen Blais arrived at Ottawa City Hall in 2010 full of fire and was constantly questioning
spending and programs.

Blais

Blais

Then came his almost-fatal heart attack in 2013 and a five-month break from his duties while he recovered. At times his life was very much in jeopardy.

Understandably Blais has been reserved and very serious since he returned to duties at city hall. Cumberland ward residents and Ottawans need the old Stephen Blais back.

How The Globe Lost Kinsella

This is becoming the story across the continent.

People are cancelling their newspaper subscriptions.

It is a downward spiral.

Owners cut journalists to save money. Readers leave newspapers “because there is nothing to read” … largely the result of cutting journalists. Advertising rates drop with the accompanying circulation decline so less money is being earned. Less money means fewer journalists.

The cycle goes on and on and on.

Tiverton Drive Battle Steps Up

This is a letter from community activist Phillip Dempsey to Councillor Keith Egli on the Tiverton Drive issue:

Councillor Egli

A memory refresher for you in respect of the April 2014 data which seemingly you wish to disregard as never happened.  (See below the attachment)
 
I can only imagine if the speeds identified below ( a sample only of course but as you well know there is far more than these two (2) examples) occurred on the street where you live.

Ebola Case Found Negative

This is a release from the City of Ottawa:

The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) and Ottawa Public Health (OPH) have received the results of the Ebola test that was sent to the National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg earlier today. The result was negative. The patient at The Ottawa Hospital’s General Campus will no longer require isolation.

Healthcare providers at TOH proceeded with isolation because the patient had symptoms and a travel/exposure history suggesting the need to consider Ebola as a possible cause of illness.

Strombo Awkward Hosting Hockey

strombo

George Stroumboulopoulos doesn’t look comfortable on Hockey Night In Canada.

It’s hard to argue with the extensive coverage Sportsnet gave hockey on Saturday evening.

Games early, games late, all the Canadian games … just switch to the channel of your choice. Sportsnet is offering a grand selection.

Just one problem and an unexpected one at that … George Stroumboulopoulos.

Open Letter To Mayor On Traffic

Watson

Watson

This is an open letter to Mayor Jim Watson from resident Phillip Dempsey concerning the traffic situation on Tiverton Drive:

Mayor Watson

I am taking the liberty of communicating with you regarding the above captioned matter.

While you are in the midst of a busy re-election campaign, we have but one simple question in respect of the above.

Why is the matter of speeding on Tiverton Drive not being substantively addressed by City Traffic representatives?

The Skyscrappers Return

Well lookie who’s back.

The icy members of SkyscraperPage.com (or the Skyscrappers as we call them) who actually created a forum on their holy platform where they trashed yours truly, printed lies about your agent and libeled the aforementioned scribbler. No wonder the weather turned cold. The Scrappers have emerged from their burrows.

Such an honour because being a target of the Scrappers means The Bulldog is on the side of goodness and light.

Batting Last, Jim Watson: Whopper Watch

Watson

Watson

This is grim.

How much did Mayor Jim Watson know about bringing Double-A baseball to Ottawa? Very, very little.

Case in point.

Watson in an interview with the Citizen’s Joanne Chianello said that Triple-A baseball was too rich for Ottawa’s blood. Probably was. The problem is that the Ottawa bid was for Double-A baseball. Embarrassing.

So now Watson has called the baseball bid in the past Major League Baseball and has twice called it Triple-A. Does this guy have advisers?

Take Chernushenko in Capital

election endorsementCapital candidate Scott Blurton is a relative newcomer to the ward having lived there four years.

Chernushenko

Chernushenko

We don’t see much about community involvement on his website or any experience with community associations. So Blurton is a raw rookie when it comes to municipal politics.

Blurton has great affinity for students, the poor and families toughing it out paying their bills. He is concerned about youth unemployment but doesn’t take into account the cost of funnelling limited municipal funds into a field that is primarily federal and provincial territory.

Blurton backs smart development though smart development is very much in the eye of the beholder. He also favours wide choice in transportation.

El-Chantiry With Reservations

election endorsementWest Carleton March incumbent Eli El-Chantiry is a hard-working, nice gentleman.

El-Chantiry

El-Chantiry

El-Chantiry does his constituency work well and was appointed deputy mayor. He is a very workmanlike representative of his ward. As Police Services Board chairman, the councillor does a competent job after a rather rocky start.

He knows what side his bread is buttered on. Roads are a major priority for El-Chantiry because they are the prime mode of transportation in his rural ward. Good roads mean votes.

El-Chantiry maintains voters can be confident with his fiscal acumen though one wonders where this council has been on the skyrocketing municipal debt. That does not bode well for the next generation of taxpayers. As well, the city over the past four years has been an administrative disaster.

Rogue Letter Has Kitchissippi Boiling

Here’s a copy of a letter that has been circulated around hotly contested Kitchissippi ward.

It is either the cry of a desperate anti-Katherine Hobbs resident or a fake used for political reasons.

Candidate Jeff Leiper says this letter did not originate from his team.

One would think if it came from a political camp that the principals would know how to spell Hobbs’ name.

Here’s the letter:
