Survey by Natasha Mooney and Chris Connolly
Just as the campaigning enters its final few hours, our election correspondents Natasha Mooney and Chris Connolly have wound up their investigations into Ottawa’s candidates. Their questions – ranging from how to support Ottawa’s arts communities to favourite Beavertail flavour – were put to all major candidates in all ridings in and surrounding Ottawa.
This last installment of their reporting is made up of all of the ridings where just one candidate replied (despite multiple follow-ups to all candidates!). We’ve got answers from folks in Orleans, Nepean-Carleton, Carleton-Mississippi Mills, and Glengarry-Prescott-Russell. And despite very lovely emails from our correspondents, we didn’t get any response from candidates in Hull-Aylmer, Gatineau or Prescott. You’ll find all candidate names listed below, whether they responded or not.
Also, in case you’re wondering: those vote mobs that have been happening across the country? Our city’s universities and colleges joined in and got out to prove they’ll be heading to the polls tomorrow. Check out Carleton and UOttawa‘s videos – and if anyone happens to have footage of the Algonquin College mob, pass along the information!
