Debate1The all-candidates' River Ward debate on October 16th was a resounding success!

With seven candidates for Councillor squaring off, the standing room only crowd were treated to a lively and informative discussion on issues important to local residents.

The CCA would like to thank our excellent moderator Joanne Chianello of the Ottawa Citizen for helping guide the dialogue and our debaters for their participation.

NEW CONTENT: At the end of the debate there were still several excellent questions from the floor. Several candidates have kindly provided answers to the questions. The replies are available online now.
