Leitch’s version of Donald Trump’s “drain the swamp” slogan appeared Saturday in an email to supporters, Metro News reported. In it, she promises to “drain the Canal of the influence paddlers and lobbyists.”

Of course, this caught the attention of many in Ottawa and across the country – the canal is, after all, a cherished landmark.
