Have your say on CBC StreetTalk!

The 2014 Municipal Election is October 27.  CBC Ottawa is on the beat and wants to hear from you about your community. We’re asking you to tell us, “What would make your neighbourhood a better place?

Come out and have your say.  On Wednesday October 8, from 12 to 1 p.m. we’ll be in Ward 13 Rideau-Rockcliffe.  Look for us at Rockliffe Crossing, St Laurent and Hemlock by the Dairy Queen.  Meet Adrian Harewood, co-host of CBC News Ottawa at 5 p.m.

We will be recording audience responses and will broadcast the highlights of #CBCStreetTalk  on CBC Radio One’s Ottawa Morning and our supper-hour television newscast, CBC News Ottawa at 5, 5:30 & 6. 

Help us get the word out on the street.  Please share this message with your community members, post it on your website and Facebook, and tweet about it.  It’s your voice that needs to be heard.

You can take part in one of three ways:

– visit CBC staff on location to have your say
– tweet your thoughts to @CBCOttawa using the hashtag #CBCStreetTalk
– post a video response on our CBC Ottawa Facebook page.
