Here’s a piece on Frasier Lipscomb who’s running for Mayor of Ottawa by Richard Komorowski.
According to Mr. Liscumb, greed and self-interest are holding the city back. He is calling on the citizens of Ottawa, young and old alike, to take the city in hand and be a part of the change. Ottawa needs to propel itself to the front, without relying on the provincial and federal governments to do it instead.
Over 80% of the population now live from paycheque to paycheque, thanks to the current depression. He hopes to encourage big business to be part of the solution, not a part of the problem.
Mr. Liscumb has other ideas too, such as building an innovative light rail transit system, and encouraging research and innovation in tackling the city’s many problems.
In short, Mr. Liscumb hopes “to teach the community how to work as a team and give them the support and means to help themselves, or change what needs to be changed by using a little innovation and team effort. This way, everyone can walk away a winner.
