The Central Canada Olympus Leather 2012 contest was held at Swizzles in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on Saturday, August 25 with John Taillifer, the lone contestant, garnering enough points to win the title.
The emcee was Alex Wisniowski who also produced the contest. Several awards were given out and there were several short fantasies and skits to entertain the crowd.
The judges were The Leather Journal publisher and editor Dave Rhodes, Zelda Marshall, Mr. Central Canada Olympus Leather 2011 Count Jeff, Ms Central Canada Olympus Leather 2011 Bad School Girl and Miss Jenn of Breathless. The tally mistress was Sherryl Townsend.
The evening featured a Kinky Caberet, a show with skits and other entertainment. This was the same weekend that Ottawa held its GLBT pride parade and festival.
Last year, Count Jeff and Bad School Girl competed for the two separate regional titles. They are a married couple, and as such were the first to compete in an International competition in May in Los Angeles, CA.
In past years the contest was held at Breathless which closed some time after last year's contest. There was no venue to hold demos and workshops this time around, so the contest was done in one day.
The Ottawa pride festival had most of Ottawa's Leather community out. The Ottawa Knights were visible in the parade and they had an information booth at the festival at Ottawa City Hall.
For some unexplained reason, the Leather/BDSM/Fetish community was split into two sections, one near the front of the parade and the other near the back.
