All Candidates Meeting tonight

I’m sure you’re glad the Federal elections are over and I hope that your favourite least worst candidate was elected.

Now the focus is on the municipal race. Bernard Von Schulmann of http://victoriavision.blogspot.com writes:

Just to let everyone know, the first all candidates meeting of the municipal campaign will be tonight at the Burnside/Gorge community centre. It will be from 6 pm to 9 pm. The first hour will be a chance to come and meet the candidates running for council. From 7 pm to 9 pm there will be a debate by the candidates running for mayor.

The Burnside/Gorge Community centre is at the corner of Cecelia and Napier, right above the Galloping Goose. The number 8, 11, 21 and 22 buses will get you there, this is a good chance for you to try out the buses in this town if you do not use them regularly.

See you there! And check out Bernard’s blog!

    Last night’s all candidates meeting was an eye-opener. It was interesting meeting the Mayoral and Council candidates. One Council hopeful, who I had assumed was relatively mainstream, buttonholed me and launched into a baseless attack on one of the key stakeholders in the affordable housing effort.

    The last five years or so could be characterized as time spent figuring out where we want to go. The Mayor’s Task Force came out of this and provided a strong blueprint showing us clearly what we needed to do.

    The next five years will entail putting these visions into motion. It will also require an unprecedented amount of partnership and collaboration between all 14 levels of local government, as well as provincial, federal levels, non-profits and private investors.

    Politicians with axes to grind or scores to settle will not only be greatly disappointed, they will disrupt the hard work Victorians have accomplished so far in the war on addictions, mental illness and homelessness.
