Yesterday we wrote that for the upcoming Ottawa election, in 24 wards, 11 councillors were not running again.
First, there are only 23 wards right now. A new 24th ward will be contested in the election. Darren really should know better.
Second, while it is true 11 councillors will not be running again to represent their ward, Somerset councillor Catherine McKenney is still campaigning for election, though this time it's for mayor.
You can find out who is running in your ward with this handy tool.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
