Lake Report hosts all-candidates meeting Sept. 7
Hear what your federal candidates have to say Sept. 7. (File)

The Lake Report is hosting an all-candidates meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 7 at Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery in St. Davids.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the outdoor event, under a large tent at the vineyard, will run from 6:30 to about 8 p.m.

The debate will feature federal candidates from the riding of Niagara Falls, which includes Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara Falls and Fort Erie.

The event will be moderated by Patrick Little, a highly respected Niagara lawyer and community volunteer who is chair of the Willowbank School of Restoration Arts in Queenston and has been involved with Save Our Rand Estate (SORE) and the Music Niagara festival.

The debate format will include questions about local and national issues, provided by NOTL residents, community organizations and editors of The Lake Report. The event also will be livestreamed on The Lake Report's Facebook page.

The meeting is an opportunity for residents to get to know their local candidates and find out how they plan to bring NOTL's voice to the table at the federal level.

COVID-19 safety guidelines will be in place, which means attendance is limited. Registration is a must. You can reserve a free spot at the event at www.eventbrite.ca/e/election-21-all-candidates-meeting-niagara-falls-riding-tickets-168111749769.

The event will go rain or shine beneath Ravine's event tent. Masks must be worn until you are seated. Light snacks prepared by Sweets & Swirls Cafe will be provided during the event and wine, beer and cider will be available for purchase through Ravine.

Have a question you'd like to ask to the candidates? Send it to editor@niagaranow.com. Specific questions about NOTL issues are preferred. The Lake Report will select a variety of questions representative of the submissions received.
