Get Ready to Meet Candidates for Mayor on June 1st!

Candidates for Mayor will be hosted by over 60 residents’ associations in Toronto on Thursday June 1st from 7 to 9 pm. FoNTRA and FoSTRA invite you to this unique event that will focus on issues of importance to the 900,000 voters under their umbrella.

The West Bend Community Association is proud member of FoSTRA.

Nicole Swerhun will be a third party public moderator, and all questions to the candidates come from the public, not special interest groups.

OCAD University will sponsor this important debate, which takes place in their auditorium at 100 McCaul Street. Please save the date! We plan for a full town hall with the candidates onstage, expressing their social engagement and vision for in the city’s future. To accommodate a very large audience, the event will also be streamed virtually on various major platforms including YouTube and Facebook.

Media will be present. Donations from residents’ associations are needed to cover the modest costs (details to follow).

Stay tuned and stay engaged. We all need to vote!
