Scharfe and Sheldrick also ran in 2014. Tysick, meanwhile, is vying for a council seat after spending the spring campaigning unsuccessfully to be MPP of the Carleton riding under the Ontario Party banner.
Osgoode is a rural ward that includes the villages of Greely, Metcalfe, and its namesake, Osgoode. This past term, rural residents were furious at having to start paying a fee for storm water services. Ditches remain an issue for candidates, along with roads. City council also recently approved the Hard Rock Casino's $318-million plan to expand its casino at the Rideau Carleton Raceway in the ward.
