CJAM Station Manager Vernon Smith commented: “I am so pleased that CJAM will have the opportunity to air the first candidate’s debate for the Ward 7 by-election.  CJAM strives to promote democratic engagement and a robust and diverse political discourse.  Airing this debate featuring nearly the entire field of candidates helps us to fulfill this commitment to the community with respect to this by-election.”

Kieran McKenzie Rose City Politics Co-host and Producer added: “We discussed the Ward 7 issue at length on the show, even long before the seat became officially vacant.  Additionally when Council was debating how to proceed with respect to filling the seat, myself and my co-panelists Rino Bortolin and Paul Synnott organized a rally to demonstrate community support for a by-election.  We’ve taken on the task of organizing this debate to facilitate the democratic process that along with several members of the community we fought to bring forward.”
