Past Federal Election Debates

The newly renamed Dufferin Board of Trade partnered with Dufferin.bizHeadwaters Tourism and the Dufferin Federation of Agriculture to continue our proud tradition of hosting federal election debates with the candidates running for office in our riding of Dufferin-Caledon. The debates provided voters a chance to ask the candidates questions about the issues that matter most to them and it gave the candidates an opportunity to speak directly to voters and present their platforms.Two debates were held; one in Orangeville and one in Shelburne.

The  Dufferin Board of Trade has prepared a Guide to Organizing an All Candidates Meeting designed to assist any community based group to host their own event. This guide is complete with a step-by-step list of tasks that will provide support to any  group looking to bring together candidates for any election. The guide also includes a sample press release and a sample agenda. DBOT is pleased to help support other community groups engage in the political process as they provide venues and opportunities for  citizens to ask questions of their candidates in any  election.
