The Newmarket Chamber of Commerce has cancelled next week's election debate citing logistical issues and the short timeframe.

The Chamber explains:

This is seriously bad news.  As I tap this out, this means there will be no debate in Newmarket open to the public where they can assess the merits of the candidates and see how they deal with being challenged on the issues.
Good grief! As a community and as a riding we are being short-changed.
Another casualty of this snap election called in the middle of a pandemic.
What a sad state of affairs that we can have a public debate on who should be the Mayor of Newmarket but not one on who should represent us in the Parliament of Canada.
