Candidates Debate Tonight – Garrison on Dundas – 6:30-9pm

Ward 19 map Toronto

Just a reminder that the Ossington Village candidate’s debate at the Garrison is happening tonight!

We’ve got some more people coming than mentioned on the first post. We also have Ted Footman, profiled yesterday, Karlene Nation, and Ross Bruto (no website) in the house, in addition to Jim Likourezos, Mike Layton, Karen Sun and Sean McCormick.

I attended the Friends of Trinity Bellwoods debate to learn how these things are done, and decided that we would allow the candidates longer to talk on various issues, hopefully getting more detailed answers.

We are going to start the evening off with a few words from the two Toronto District School Board candidates, Michael Sims and Chris Bolton, so everyone can learn a bit about the position, and each of the candidate’s platform.

Then we’re going to move to the main event where each candidate will have a two minute intro. We’ll be doing these in a random order. We’ll start with a question about the Ossington moratorium, and then move on to questions from the audience. We’ll be limiting the answers to 45 seconds.

Then we’ll have two minutes each for closing remarks, and hopefully enjoy a drink with the candidates after, where you can talk to them about the issues one on one.

We’re excited about this group of young and enthusiastic candidates who are going to change the ward for the better. Come out and hear what they have to say!
