How to engage in the election debates

Pose the tough questions to local candidates as well as party leaders.

During the election season, it is important to keep an eye on your local news for updates regarding debates in your riding. Frequently check your local newspaper and online resources to stay informed of any upcoming debates or events. Please try to attend as many as you can. After you attend, please email [email protected] and let us know how it went and if you were able to have your question answered.

For the leaders’ debates, DWD Canada will update our supporters as soon as we become aware of the details of these debates. Although we will remain vigilant, these debates are occasionally announced a few days before they will take place. We will try to provide as much notice as we can when informing our supporters.
