The three main party candidates duked it out at the Community Auditorium. All three candidates lobbed a number of barba at each other over a number of topics. Incumbent Liberal MPP Bill Mauro was the most vocal, attacking his opposition over a number of issues, including the Ring of Fire development, roads, taxes and transparency. PC Candidate Fred Gilbert lobbed a number of bombs at Mauro over, hydro rates, the green energy act, and debt servicing levels. NDP Candidate Mary Kozorys remained relatively silent but did attack Mauro over unemployment levels and spoke up over funding levels for long term care beds in North Western Ontario.
City Council is sending a letter of questions to all the candidates in the upcoming provincial election. Mayor Keith Hobbs says council wants to hear what the candidates think on a number of issue and has sent out a letter. Hobbs says the biggest concern of council is the issue of an industrial hydro rate.
