ELECTION 2018

Kissing babies in Kitchissippi

Kitchissippi ward has changed hands several times over the past few elections.

It's Jeff Leiper vs. Daniel Stringer in this urban ward

Kitchissippi has a population of 44,262 people living in 21,196 homes.

Kitchissippi ward has changed hands several times over the past few elections.

Daniel Stringer is hoping this trend will continue.

Stringer, a previous candidate in Kitchissippi, is taking on incumbent Jeff Leiper, who won in 2014 with 55 per cent of the vote.

In 2010, Stringer took 15 per cent of the vote.

Candidates who did not provide a website when they registered do not have links to their campaigns.

Perhaps no other ward in the city has as many contentious development issues as Kitchissippi, including spot zoning applications and the lack of a transit development plan for Westboro station. The next councillor will also have to deal with the western extension of LRT Phase 2.

Want to know more about the candidates?

So did we. 

CBC Ottawa created a questionnaire and sent it to each of the registered candidates to fill out.

You can read the responses below. Some candidates did not respond to the questionnaire.

Questionnaires are posted as they were submitted.
