Ottawa's mayoral candidates give their elevator pitch — literally
10 candidates pitch their vision for the city, while rising above it
Ten candidates. 24 floors. One vision for Ottawa.
We invited the people running for the city's top job to sell themselves to voters with a literal "elevator pitch."
The candidates were given time to prepare their vision for Ottawa and just 30 seconds to deliver it.
Then, we brought them into a downtown Ottawa elevator and had some fun.
Our municipal affairs analyst Joanne Chianello put each of the would-be mayors in the hot seat, posing rapid-fire questions like "Shawarma or Beavertails?" and "What's your go-to karaoke song?"
CBC offered this opportunity to all candidates who provided contact information to Elections Ottawa at the start of the campaign.
Bernard Couchman and James T. Sheahan are also registered as mayoral candidates. We will add their elevator pitches if they become available.
