PRA Federal All-Candidates Meeting + Call for Volunteers – Oct. 16

The Parkdale Residents Association (PRA) is hosting a Federal All-Candidates meeting. This is Parkdale residents’ opportunity to hear directly from the candidates running  for election in the Parkdale-High Park riding. One of these candidates will be our elected representative in Federal Parliament.

FREE COMMUNITY DINNER for the event will be provided starting at 6:30 PM courtesy of Greenest City – “EAT, THINK, VOTE” campaign.

Advance Voting takes place between Oct. 11th and 14th. You can get further details HERE on where to vote, what information you need and a list of all the candidates.

To prepare for the meeting the PRA attempted to contact ALL the registered candidates. We asked them in advance of the event to consider one question – What your vision is [for the future of] of Parkdale?

Given the principals, practices and policy of diversity and inclusivity that the PRA upholds and with much consideration the PRA Executive has rescinded our invitation to the Peoples Party of Canada candidate
