Ottawa 2010 Election: Improved Mayoral Candidate List

September 19th, 2010 at 1:47 pm

The City of Ottawa recently announced their candidate information page for the upcoming 2010 Municipal Elections, and, as I mentioned on twitter, the information provided is a little lacking,

It’s 2010 & the Ottawa election candidates page lists their phone, fax, & email but not website. Yeesh.

For those of us comfortable with the internet, I’ve compiled an improved list of the Mayoral Candidates to add a website, Twitter, and Facebook Pages links wherever I could find them.  I’ve also omitted the Fax number from the original City of Ottawa page.

Nominated Candidates for the 2010 Elections

  1. Values as of Sept. 19, 2010
  2. This is actually a link to a Facebook profile, but since it’s linked from the candidate’s website I’ve included it.

Have a correction to the above information? Let me know in the comments below.

OC Transpo Mapping

octranspo.mobiSome interesting new options for trip planning with OC Transpo:

A new official mobile interface from OCTranspo: I’ve yet to see if it will be quicker/more easy to use than (formerly, but it certainly has more options and a mobile interface of the travel planner.

Also, Google Transit now supports Ottawa (when did this happen?!):

Much happier times in OC Transpo travel planning!
