Candidates Meeting Sept. 13

We are excited to host a candidates meeting for the upcoming federal election in the Beaches-East York riding this Monday, September 13 at 7pm. The meeting will be moderated by Lindsay (Swooping Hawk) Kretschmer, executive director of the Toronto Aboriginal Support Services Council. Questions for candidates come from the community, the DECA board, and the moderator.
We extended invitations to the four candidates representing the Liberals, Conservatives (not attending), Green and NDP based on the criteria set out Federal leader debates, which is:

(i): on the date the general election is called, the party is represented in the House of Commons by a Member of Parliament who was elected as a member of that party; or

(ii): the party’s candidates for the most recent general election received at that election at least 4% of the number of valid votes cast; or

(iii): five days after the date the general election is called, the party receives a level of national support of at least 4%, determined by voting intention, and as measured by leading national public opinion polling organizations, using the average of those organizations’ most recently publicly-reported results.

About DECA

The Danforth East Community Association (DECA) is a group of neighbours that started working together in 2007 to make our community more vibrant, walkable, safe and fun. We’ve made big changes to our little pocket, starting with our East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market, giving facelifts to a number of Danforth stores and bringing the Danforth East Community Arts Fair to the community. We call ourselves a “community” association rather than a “resident” association because we feel it is important to include residents, businesses, schools, places of worship, and other organizations in the conversations we have about how to make our home on Toronto better for all of its inhabitants. You can read our full constitution right here.

Our catchment is between Monarch Park and Main, the railway tracks and Mortimer/Lumsden.
