MEDIA ADVISORY – City’s first all candidates debate will focus on the future of transportation in Centretown
When: Monday, June 16, 2014 6:30 – 9:00 pm
Where: Knox Presbyterian Church, 120 Lisgar Street
Over the next four years the Confederation LRT Line will change the face of downtown Ottawa, taking thousands of buses off the streets and offering a once in a century opportunity to build a walkable and cycling friendly Centretown. That’s just one topic Somerset Ward candidates can be expected to address at the first all candidates debate of the 2014 municipal election season. Other key issues at the debate, which will focus on transportation, will likely include cycling lanes, accessibility, parking and sidewalks.
What matters to you? Debate organizers are asking citizens to submit questions to be asked at the event. Please send questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The event will be broadcast by Rogers TV, Cable 22, and moderated by the Ottawa Citizen’s Joanne Chianello.
Notably, this fall Somerset Ward will elect a new councillor. The June 16th forum is an opportunity for citizens to make an early assessment of the candidates.
