Ottawa's most wanted: Have you seen these men?


The year is drawing to a close and there are lists: lists of tragedies that have befallen mankind, the loss of great talents in the arts, the best of, the worst of, biggest fails, cutest kittens.

And Ottawa’s most wanted.

Bear in mind they are wanted for — but not necessarily guilty of — the crimes associated with their portraits. But the Ottawa Police Service very much wants these people apprehended. In some cases, grooming alone is cause for concern.
