Mayoral race gets another contender today

  • Print

Another candidate will throw his hat into the mayoral campaign.

Robert-Falcon Ouellette, program director of the University of Manitoba aboriginal focus programs, will become the seventh person to officially enter the race when he files his campaign papers today.

Ouellette, who was raised in Calgary, said he decided to run because he has always paid attention to both municipal and provincial politics.

"I waited to truly get involved," Ouellette said in a statement released on Thursday.

"I have spent my time speaking with citizens about their desires and dreams for our city and this has allowed me to better understand their unique perspectives."

Ouellette joins former councillor Gord Steeves, lawyer Brian Bowman, Coun. Paula Havixbeck, Mike Vogiatzakis, Michel Fillion and Gordon Warren as candidates.

Incumbent mayor Sam Katz and former NDP MP and MLA Judy Wasylycia-Leis have not announced whether they will run.

Ouellette, who is married and has four children, will host a campaign event at the Caboto Centre today at noon.

He has degrees in music, education and anthropology.
