All Candidates meeting held

For those of you who missed it, a debate between the three Ward 7 by-election candidates was held at the Bobcaygeon Legion last Thursday, January 7. Two of our local publications attended and have reported on the event. The articles are relatively short in length and depth, so they don’t provide a great deal of information that might help sway those of you who remain undecided. You can read the articles yourself by clicking on the following links:
