And the debate goes on: Vaughan Chamber hosts just three mayor candidates Wednesday

27 Sep

The following press release came from the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce earlier today.

There’s been some buzz about the Chamber not inviting all eight candidates to this debate. Should they have? Is it fair? Does it have to be fair? How’d they decide? They say here it’s based on “biographical information” and “determined by the interests of the business community”. What do you think?

Join the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce’s
Mayoral Debate!
The Vaughan Chamber of Commerce is facilitating a Mayoral Debate between three top candidates on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at La Primavera Hospitality and Convention Centre starting at 7pm.
Given that there are quite a few candidates for the 2010 Municipal election it would not be feasible to invite all candidates and be able to conduct a productive debate within a two-hour time frame.  With this in mind, the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce carefully obtained and reviewed biographical information on each of the candidates.  The Vaughan Chamber of Commerce’s selection of debate candidates was determined by the interests of the business community.  Three candidates have been invited to participate in this debate, and all three, Maurizio Bevilacqua, incumbent Mayor Linda Jackson and Mario Racco, have confirmed their attendance.  All members of the public are welcome to attend this free event.

No pre-registration required, however, Vaughan Chamber members can call in advance to receive preferential seating.  Call Jennifer at 905-761-1366, ext 221, or email jennifer@vaughanchamber.ca.

Date: Wednesday, September 29, 2010
Time: 7:00 – 9:00pm
Location: La Primavera Hospitality and Convention Centre, 77 Woodstream Blvd, Woodbridge

We hope to see you there!
