Tonight’s the night to hear from candidates
Byelection a week from today
By Kris Scheuer
The Town Crier paper is hosting a St. Paul’s all-candidates debate this evening and it should be a barn burner.
The seat in midtown Toronto is vacant as former MPP Michael Bryant stepped down in May to work for the city. He has since resigned that post while he awaits trail for an incident involving the death of cyclist Darcy Sheppard on Aug. 31. But that is another story.
Back to the debate on Sept. 10. It will be at the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto at 175 St Clair Ave. West near Avenue Rd. Start time 7:30 pm although the candidates will be there at 7 pm to mingle with people.
Town Crier Editor-In-Chief Eric McMillan will be moderating and directing questions to the candidates and then there will be questions from the floor. Ten candidates have been invited and confirmed attendance.
Sue-Ann Levy for the Progressive Conservatives.
Eric Hoskins with the Liberals.
Chris Chopik with the Greens.
Julian Heller for the NDP.
Danish Ahmed with Party for People with Special Needs.
Marius Frederick an independent.
John Kittredge with Ontario Liberatarian Party.
Paul McKeever with Freedom Party of Ontario.
Raj Rama an independent.
John Turmel and independent.
