Event Time Place
Ward 7 All Candidates Meeting October 9th 10:00 a.m. Sturgeon Point Union Church

Both Ward 7 candidates for councillor and all three mayoral candidates have agreed to attend this meeting on Saturday morning. The meeting will be hosted by the Sturgeon Point Association. This is our chance to get to know the candidates first-hand and to ask them some questions. Don’t forget, the Church isn’t heated, so it may be a little cool. Dress warmly! Refreshments will be provided.


There has been a fair amount of press in the local papers about the candidates and about the election in general. The coverage is heavy on the mayoral candidates and shy on information about the race to represent Ward 7. Below is a collection of links related to Ward 7 election issues and the mayoralty race. We’ll keep adding to this as news develops.
