Toronto Danforth Candidates Debate – Thursday March 15, 2012 – 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. – Don Mills United Church – 126 O’Connor
Meet Your Candidates
The date is rapidly approaching. Toronto Danforth is headed for another election to replace Jack Layton. The sentiment is that whoever replaces Jack will have “big shoes to fill”. Well maybe, but remember that the new MP for Toronto Danforth will NOT be a party leader. As a result, this upcoming by-election is an opportunity for Toronto Danforth to elect an MP who will represent Toronto Danforth. Because of Jack’s responsibilities as NDP leader, Jack focused his energy on being NDP leader. He did not participate in the Toronto Danforth election debates. His non-attendance triggered resentment among (at least some) Toronto Danforth residents. But, it’s time to move on and elect a new MP. Toronto Danforth has an interesting and engaging group of candidates. Let’s also hope for a higher voter turnout. Come meet your candidates in the March 15 Toronto Danforht All Candidates Debate as follows:
Thursday March 15 – 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. – Don Mills United Church – 126 O’Connor
