For the first time ever, the City of Brampton is hosting a town hall with local candidates running in the upcoming federal election.

Brampton residents will have the opportunity to hear from candidates regarding local and national issues as they prepare to go to the polls on October 22.

“As one of Canada’s youngest and fastest-growing cities,” says Mayor Patrick Brown, “the support and partnership of the federal government is key to delivering on Brampton’s priorities and vision. We look forward to a meaningful conversation on how our partners will commit to advancing transit, economic development, community safety, innovation and environment-driven initiatives in our community.” 

Topics for discussion will include transit, climate change, flood mitigation, and a number of other priorities the City has identified as important. Residents can also submit questions for the candidates prior to the event.

The event is taking place at the Rose Theatre on October 9 starting at 7 p.m. Admission is free. Guests are encouraged to register prior to the event, as seating is limited. The event will also be streamed live on the City of Brampton’s Facebook page.
