Together with our friends from the Toronto Midtown Business Association, we sponsored a debate among the three leading candidates.  Olivia Chow, Doug Ford and John Tory all participated.  Kym Geddes, the news director at NewsTalk Radio 1010, served as our debate moderator.

We want to thank the members and staff at St Andrew’s.  They were enthusiastic and helpful throughout the preliminaries and during the debate.

We also got very good help from BudmanPR.  They handle the media arrangements and made sure that our story, as sponsors, was circulated.

Over 200 people attended.  We had wide coverage about the debate topics in the media later that night and through the next day.  Rogers TV and CP24 broadcast it live and CBC and CTV had cameras there to film it for later use in their newscasts.
