Top 2 candidates from 2015 back at it

Pierre Poilievre and Chris Rodgers gave us one of our closest local races in 2015. What will happen this time?

Poilievre won his fifth election for the Conservatives in this rural Ottawa riding by fewer than 2,000 votes over Rodgers of the Liberals, who has experience as a public servant.

Also on the ballot are the NDP's Kevin HuaGordon Kubanek of the Green Party, who also ran for the Greens here in last year's provincial election; and People's Party candidate Alain Musende, a Health Canada worker and part-time University of Ottawa biopharmaceuticals professor.

Candidates are included in this riding profile once they've been listed as a confirmed candidate by Elections Canada, chosen as the winner of a nomination contest or who were the chosen candidate by a party that got at least one per cent of the national popular vote in 2015.

Candidate questionnaires

CBC Ottawa sent every candidate running in eastern Ontario or western Quebec seven questions via their party or a publicly available email address.

They were asked to stick to 25 to 100 word answers, depending on the questions. 

Their answers have not been edited by CBC.
