Ottawa mascots, old and new

Two photos came up on my Twitter feed this week related to Ottawa mascots.

First, a throwback Thursday shot of some classic Ottawa mascots from 1992.

Can you help name them all?  From left to right:

  1. ?

  3. Sparky (Ottawa Fire Department)
  4. Slush Puppie?
  5. Yellow Pages
  6. OC Owl
  7. Bank of Montreal
  8. dog?
  9. ?
  10. ?
  11. red bird?

Second, the Ottawa Senators unveiled four new prime minister mascots who will be taking part in intermissions at some of the games this year.  They're inspired by the Washington Nationals Racing Presidents, one of baseball's most successful (and entertaining) promotions.

From left to right: Spartacat, King, Laurier, Macdonald, Borden.
