Two debates down and one to go in Timmins. Eastlink TV hosted their live debate last night on channel 10. All four candidates were in attendance, of which the format allowed for platform stances and open debate. The common themes throughout the night were the Ring of Fire, northern infrastructure, and balancing the budget. Questions on paying for infrastructure, like the roads, how to stop violence against Aboriginal women, and platform policies turned into heated debate between the four.

The debate will be re-aired over the next few days leading up to the election on October 9th at 6:00pm, the 12th at 8:00pm, and the 14th at 9:00pm. The final debate in Timmins is happening on October 15th at TH & VS, starting at 7:00pm. Local media will be sitting on the panel, including Moose FM.
