Ottawa

“Ottawa is really uniquely situated because (you can go exploring) within an hour-drive from downtown. You can be climbing in Calabogie, running in Gatineau Park, skiing in Chelsea, or whitewater kayaking on the Ottawa River,” — Jordan Kent, film festival organizer.

Through opening online shopping instead of retail stores first, (especially when Canada Post is on a rotating strike) Ontario is putting the cart before the horse. People need to be able to see the product they intend to purchase, not wait five days for delivery.

Ottawa has two universities and a college, which means there are plenty of students who, if they get politically engaged, can make a real difference and work as a powerful voting block. The student voice needs to be heard in this city, and the ballot box is a great way to do so.

Ottawa heads to the polls on Oct. 22 to vote in this year’s municipal election. The Fulcrum spoke to candidates in five wards surrounding campus to hear their priorities and ideas on issues affecting students.
