Meet the 2018 Provincial Election Candidates

Mark your calendars neighbours!  The Whitevale & District Residents’ Association (WDRA) is proud to host a “Meet the Candidates” evening on June 5th at 7:30 pm.

As we all know, Whitevale continues to be situated at the heart of so many provincial issues and the WDRA believes it’s essential that we hear first-hand from the candidates, their views on the issues most important to us.  This informal ‘mix & mingle’ event (including refreshments) is meant to be a casual, non-combative opportunity for everyone to ask their questions either one-on-one or in a group (no speeches, statements or grandstanding).

Here’s what you need to know:

Date: Tuesday, June 5, 2018

Time: 7:30 pm

Location: Whitevale Community Centre

We’re pleased to report that “almost” all candidates of the Pickering-Uxbridge riding have agreed to attend. Confirmed candidates include:

  • Peter Bethlenfalvy, PCs
  • Nerissa Cariño, NDP
  • Adam Narraway, Green Party and
  • Brendan Reilly, Libertarian

So note this important date in your calendar folks. We kindly ask that you let us know if you think you may be able to attend as it helps us plan the refreshments.  You can RSVP via email or through the Facebook Event created for this meeting.  Please feel free to share this notice with your friends and neighbours who live in the Pickering-Uxbridge riding.

We look forward to seeing you then!
