Record number of Orléans candidates tricky for voters

By Kate Porter, CBC News Ottawa, September 7, 2018

Eleven Orlé​ans ward candidates chatted in French at a debate Thursday night, giving voters what's likely going to be one of a few chances to hear from the record number of candidates for that council seat in one setting.

The francophone cultural group Mouvement d'implication francophone d'Orléans, or MIFO, held all-candidates debates this week for Ottawa's three eastern wards.

(...)On Sept. 27, Ecology Ottawa plans to also hold an event for the ward, but candidates do not expect a traditional format then, either.
