Issue 598 Volume 3 Number 99
It’s Monday, August 29, 2022 and NarCity has discovered that the one-star reviews of Parliament Hill are unintentionally funny.
The election for Mayor and Council for the City of Ottawa is Monday, October 24, 2022. The City has finalized the official list of everyone who will be on the ballot here.
Of the 23 existing ward councillors, 11 are not running again for their seat, and neither is Mayor Jim Watson. Somerset ward councillor Catherine McKenney is giving up her ward and running for mayor. In total, one hundred and six people are running for council, plus 14 for mayor. There is also a brand new ward this year, Barrhaven East, electing its first representative.
Ottawa residents will vote for one mayor, citywide, and one representative from their ward. You can enter your address in this tool to see who your candidates are.
There is a debate tomorrow between 12 of the 14 candidates for Mayor.
What: Mayoral Candidate Eco-Debate, a moderated panel discussion on environmental and climate justice themes, questions from residents, followed by a meet and greet with refreshments.
Who: 12 mayoral candidates
When: 6 pm – 8 pm, Tuesday August 30, 2022
Where: Kanata Recreation Complex, Hall A, 100 Charlie Rogers Place
And in non-election updates ...
▪️Sadly, summer’s drawing to a close. To make ourselves feel better we’ve already started planning next year’s garden, which makes tomorrow’s 12:00pm launch of Roam Flora’s Tulip and Narcissus bulbsimportant. They’ll have 30 varieties of tulip bulbs to choose from, and eight of Narcissus.
▪️We’re fans of the new feature menu at the Lexington: there’s a different special every day of the week. On Mondays, you get one meat and three sides for $17, which sounds like a great way to start the week. They've got locations in Westboro and on Clarence in the ByWard Market.
▪️Camp Fortune Snow School is now taking registrations for ski and snowboard programs.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
