An Invite to All from the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce
Posted September 24th, 2019 on Niagara At Large
The Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce, the region’s largest body for representing members of the business community on the Ontario side of the Niagara River, is hosting a candidates debate for those running in the St. Catharines Riding on October 7th.
The St. Catharines Riding is an interesting one to watch because, federally and over the past three or four decades, it has bounced back and forth between the Liberals and Conservatives – and often goes to the candidate of the party that wins nationally.
For the past four years, the riding has been held by a Liberal, but in what appears to be a close race between the Liberals and Conservatives, it could certainly be a long night of ballot counting on October 21st before we know who wins.
And don’t discount a possible surprise with the other parties, including the NDP and Greens, feeling they have a real shot this time, given all of the apparent misgiving voters have, this time out, with the Liberals and Conservatives.
So if you are voting in the St. Catharines riding, or are just plain interested in what is unfolding politically across the Niagara region, this is a debate you should mark on your calendar.
Here is more about the date, time and location from the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce –
