Candidates who did not provide a website when they registered do not have links to their campaigns.
While most people would primarily associate this ward with the tony neighbourhood of Rockcliffe — it's right in the name! — this is one of the more socially diverse areas in the city. Issues include affordable housing, programs for at-risk youth, preserving and creating greenspace in an era of infill development, and improved transit service. And an increase in shooting incidents over the last few years has raised concerns about gang violence.
