Federal Candidates Debate – Oct 1st, 2015

Written by Executive Director on . Posted in Community News, South Queens Chamber News

The South Queens Chamber of Commerce invites you to attend the Federal Candidates Debate on:

  • Thursday, October 1, 2015
  • Astor Theatre in Liverpool
  • at 7 p.m

The candidates for the four main parties running in the riding of South Shore/St. Margaret’s take part in a candidates’ debate. The event is being organized by the South Queens Chamber of Commerce which has hosted similar events during previous municipal, provincial and federal elections.

The candidates participating in the debate are, in alphabetical order:

  • Alex Godbold, NDP Party
  • Bernadette Jordan, Liberal Party
  • Richard Biggar, Green Party
  • Richard Clark, Conservative Party

“The South Queens Chamber of Commerce’s goal in hosting this debate is to provide people with the opportunity to hear the candidates speak on issues that are important to our community and our economy,” explained SQCC president, Robin Anthony. “We are looking forward to an interesting exchange of information and hope this will encourage people to participate in our democratic process by voting in the federal election on October 19.”

In preparing for the debate, the Chamber canvassed its members for questions to ask the candidates. Questions covering a range of topics were selected and will be provided to all candidates in advance.

The debate format will allow each candidate to give an opening and closing statement and to address each question. Candidates will be given equal time to speak throughout the program.

Audience members may also submit questions. Everyone will be given a card as they enter the theatre and asked to submit their questions in writing. The moderator will present the candidates with as many audience questions as time allows. The moderator for the debate is Kevin Page, Vice President of the Chamber, who has moderated SQCC-sponsored debates in the past.

Doors open at the Astor Theatre on Main Street at 6:15 p.m. on October 1. There is no assigned seating.

Audience members are asked not to bring signs or placards into the theatre.
