All-Candidates Meeting Video and Gratitude

Democracy in action on Danforth East

Last Friday, October 14 your friendly neighbourhood association (that’s us!) hosted an all-candidates meeting at Hope United Church. It was an extremely well-attended event, with about 150 people there in person, and 50+ people watching the live broadcast. All of the candidates showed their commitment to this community and this position with grace and eloquence. We hope that hearing from them helped people make their very important decision in advance of voting day on October 24!
This event was a whole-board effort!
