On Tuesday, Sept 14th, the Almonte Community Coordinators (The Hub/Rebound) will host an all-candidates meeting in Almonte at the Civitan Hall (500 Almonte Street). It will be a live in-person event as well as being live-streamed as a Zoom session online. It’s scheduled to start at 7:00 pm and the doors to the hall will open at 6:45 pm.
Despite ongoing COVID restrictions, local residents will have the opportunity to hear the federal candidates for Lanark Frontenac Kingston speak on local issues.
All 6 candidates have confirmed their participation: Florian Bors (PPC), Michelle Foxton (Liberal), Steve Garrison (NDP), Blake Hamilton (Rhinoceros), Calvin Neufeld (Green), and Scott Reid (Conservative).
This will be an information evening, not a debate, with candidates speaking on economic, social and environmental issues, followed by a 30 minute Q&A session.
COVID-19 regulations limit the hall capacity to 135 persons, so the event will also feature a Zoom connection. You must register in advance if you wish to attend this meeting by Zoom:

Mandatory procedures for entering the Hall include masking, social distancing, hand sanitizing and contact tracing. No printed materials may be distributed inside the hall. The Almonte Community Coordinators has been a not-for-profit tradition since 1974, dedicated to serving the most vulnerable in their community through the revenue generated from their two stores: The Hub and Rebound.
