All Candidates Meeting
Manotick Village and Community Association is hosting an on-line All Candidates meeting for the riding of Carleton on Wednesday, September 15. All four candidates have confirmed for the event which will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The format will include candidate statements, questions from community associations and questions from riding residents. If you are unable to attend, you can submit questions in advance through the MVCA web site.
The event is limited to 100 people so anyone interested in attending will have to register in advance. A log-in link will be sent out to those who have registered the day of the event.
WHY THE MEETING IS BEING HELD ONLINE
We have received some questions asking why this meeting is virtual and not in person.
In short it is because of current Covid-19 Safety Requirements.
An outdoor option was logistically too challenging to manage.
An indoor option would have been limited to a total of 25 people including candidates, moderator and those helping with logistics. That option would have allowed for very few spaces for residents.
MVCA concluded that the best way to permit residents an opportunity to hear from the candidates in this riding.
