Toronto Municipal Election: Mayoral Platform Discussion

August 26, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

One of the most important events in Toronto politics is the upcoming mayoral election, taking place on October 27th, 2014, and with more than 65 candidates currently competing for the coveted role.  As the face of Toronto, the mayor directly represents approximately 7% of Canada’s population.   Over the next few months we will see a ramp up in campaigning, scores of formal debates and millions of dollars spent by candidates to help promote their name in the election process.  Torontonians will soon have to make an important decision that will impact the public sector for the next four years – it is important that we remain educated on what our candidates actually stand for.

Up to now, we have heard a lot of rhetoric around personality rather than discussion on public policy.  At WSIC our goal is to encourage a broader discussion on public policy.  To this end, WSIC has invited two mayoral candidates, David Soknacki, Morgan Baskin, and Ari Goldkind, to speak with our audience and discuss the merits of their platforms.  We appreciate our guests agreeing to come out and hold their feet to the fire!  The candidates will be open to discuss topics such as road tolls, municipal term limits, transit, police budgets, taxation, parks and recreation, youth issues, and anything you think Toronto’s next mayor should focus on.  We are certain this will be a lively event and are looking forward to the discussion.

In addition to this special WSIC event, we are also excited to host this discussion at a new time and location: Willowdale Baton Rouge. 5000 Yonge St on Tuesday August 26. Doors open at 7:00 pm for informal networking. Discussion starts 7:30.

We look forward to your feedback on this new time and location, and of course, we look forward to seeing everyone soon.

Please RSVP to let us know you an join us.
