Kitchissippi councillor Jeff Leiper and I have worked on many issues together for several years. I’m thrilled to have his strong support as I seek election in Rideau-Rockcliffe.
The residents of Rideau-Rockcliffe have had strong representation for the last four years. In this year’s by-election, it’s more important than ever that Rideau-Rockcliffe has a councillor who is a smart, independent thinker with a vision for Ottawa and the deep knowledge of how to achieve it at City Hall.
This spring, I’m supporting Sheila Perry as that Councillor for Rideau-Rockcliffe.
Sheila and I began collaborating on infill and development issues when we were both
I’ve watched her work on the Rideau Hub to help bring that to fruition and cheered when she won a Crime Prevention Ottawa award for those efforts. Her relationships and ability to accomplish good things for her community have my utmost respect.community association leaders. Our relationship has only gotten stronger as we’ve worked together on city-building and governance issues in her leadership role with the Federation of Citizens Associations.
Council has a critical term ahead. When the new councillor for Rideau-Rockcliffe takes their seat, they’ll need to come to the table with an already deep understanding of our city planning processes, including zoning, the Official Plan, development charges, the budget, housing and transportation planning.
I’m looking forward to working with Sheila and continuing the great relationship I’ve forged with the representative of Rideau-Rockcliffe. I know that when residents elect Sheila, she’ll hit the ground running to champion the values and decision-making I know Ottawa needs at this critical time in our city’s history.

Sheila Perry has a long and consistent track record of being the champion of working class families and newcomer Canadians in the McArthur-Overbrook area of Ottawa. A trailblazer and creative tour-de-force, she was the originator of the Overbook Community Dinner, Overbook Community Gardens and an ally in the creation of the Overbrook Community Bike Clinic, a health initiative that fixes bikes for single-parent and under-waged families. These programs, administered by the Ottawa East Seventh-day Adventist Church in Overbook, are ongoing. They continue to provide services and a sense of community to hundreds of families in the ward each year since 2013. Grateful for Sheila’s partnership, commitment and vision, we happily endorse her candidacy for city councillor in Ward 13.
