Mayor Jim Watson Re-Elected

Incumbent Mayor Jim Watson has been  re-elected Mayor of the City of Ottawa.

Watson said tonight his first priority will be to see the light rail transit system — through to completion, and guide the $3-billion LRT extension in the works.

During the campaign, Watson pledged to cap tax increases at three per cent — a rise from the two per cent cap he imposed last term — with the aim of using the money to fix roads and cover unexpected costs related to cannabis.
