Rick Chiarelli Councillor Of Ottawa City
When he won a seat on the Carleton Separate School Board in the 1980s, Rick Chiarelli was first elected to office at the age of 19. He was the province’s youngest elected official at the moment. In 1985, he ran for a seat on the Ottawa Carleton Regional Municipality Council but lost.

For the newly merged City of Ottawa, the 2000 municipal election was the first.

In a landslide, Chiarelli prevailed and became advisor to the Baseline Ward. Chiarelli was re-electedthrough acclamation in 2003.

Early Life of Rick Chiarelli
Rick Chiarelli created the Ontario Students Alliance for Fair Funding (OSAFF) to work for the equality promised in the Canadian Constitution when he attended high school in St. Pius X in Ottawa at the age of 16. At this moment, only grade 10 financed Ontario’s distinct colleges. A high school student had to pay significant tuition fees beyond this.
Chiarelli started speaking at hundreds of colleges, and OSAFF grew rapidly to more than 70,000 members across Ontario.
OSAFF initiated a legal challenge against the treatment of distinct schools by the Government of Ontario and persuaded Ian Scott, a prominent Canadian lawyer, to represent them in court. The action was scheduled to coincide with Pope John Paul II’s visit to the Premier. The tribunal enforced deadlines on the Province to file their complete defense against the action. As a consequence, Premier Bill Davis announced a shift in the century-old policy of the Province and provided complete financing for distinct schools. OSAFF won the case unanimously 9-0 at the Canadian Supreme Court.
During the legal challenge of OSAFF, Chiarelli ran and won for the school board’s school trustee. This made Chiarelli the youngest ever elected.

The lady in an exclusive to CBC said the interview took place in late June 2019 at a Starbucks on a Sunday afternoon. Rick Chiarelli questioned her if she was open to wearing outfits for activities like the annual comic book convention, Comic Con.
I just couldn’t think that this was going on. It’s 2019, I just kept thinking, how’s that feasible? The lady claimed that Chiarelli showed her a picture of an ex-employee dressed in a revealing costume she had worn for the famous case on her cell phone.
She said To the councillor for College ward then asked her: “What would you not wear?” When she asked what he meant by that, she said Chiarelli responded: “Well, would you go braless?”
The lady said she was shocked by the request and said she was not comfortable with the suggestion to Chiarelli.
