Local federal election candidates to square off in Monday's debate

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The Flamborough Chamber of Commerce is giving area residents an opportunity to question candidates vying for the seat in the Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale riding. The candidates will square off next Monday (January 16) at Waterdown District High School.

The debate, the only one slated for Flamborough, will adhere to a strict timetable running from 7 to 9 p.m.

Confirmed to take part in the event, which was organized early in the campaign, are Dr.Gordon Guyatt (NDP), David Januczkowski (Green Party), Russ Powers (Liberal) and David Sweet (Conservative).

While Ben Cowie (Independent) and Jamil Ghaddar (Marxist-Leninist) have since been added to the ballot, they will not be part of the debate. Organizers weren't aware of any other candidates when the public discussion was set up and have decided to stick with the original format featuring four candidates.

Under the direction of moderator Paul Riggs, a past president of the Chamber, the candidates (in alphabetical order) will provide two-minute opening remarks and will close the debate (in reverse order) with comments also restricted to two minutes. Sandwiched in between will be questions from the floor.

Questioners will be limited to 30 seconds to keep the debate moving and to avoid anyone from launching a speech of their own. Each candidate will have up to a minute to respond.

No election signs will be allowed on the high school property or in the building. Each candidate will have a table where candidate information, pamphlets and signs can be displayed.
