Subject: I shall proudly take that pledge!!
To: <>

Having run for the position of councillor in Ward 12, in 2003 and 2006, and having lived most of my life in your Ward, I am very familiar with your concerns and championed then as I have continued to do since then.  A main concept of my platform is giving our communities a voice and your pledge is precisely it!  Over the last year I have been a dedicated and central figure in the SOS Vanier movement to stop the Salvation Army’s misguided proposal to build one of the world’s biggest emergency men’s homeless shelter on a Designated Heritage Main Street and to get Ottawa to finally and fully embrace Housing First as our model in dealing with homelessness in a humane fashion without destroying another vulnerable community for all time.  Stopping this bad mistake will go a long way to helping Sandy Hill as well.  It’s the same sad council story, break every rule in the planning act and ”force’ this development on a community without any Accountability, Consultation or Transparency.  It is why I decided to run for Mayor…Ottawa can, and must, do better.  Do visit my website at, I think you will like what you find there.  I’m happy to speak at any community gatherings or answer any questions you may have.

Warmest Regards,

Bruce McConville
