Chamber all-candidates debate tonight

CORNWALL – Seen by some as the climax of the election campaign, the candidates for Cornwall city council debate tonight at the Cornwall Civic Complex.

The Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce all-candidates forum starts at 6 p.m. and will be broadcast live on TV Cogeco.

Chamber President Kevin Hargreaves says the three key issues facing the business community are taxes, business development and red tape for start-ups and expansions.

Given the number of people running for council, the candidates will only make a platform presentation. Mayoral candidates will also be answering pre-determined questions and a brief scrum after each one.

The debate, being held in the salons at the complex, is being moderated by boom 101.9 morning show co-host Dan Allaire.
