Letter: Site for all-candidates debates is not easily accessible
Editorial. Supplied
Dear editor:

I am writing regarding your Sept. 1 news story, “NOTL group plans series of candidate debates.”

While I appreciate the effort put in by this group to arrange candidate debates, I am disappointed that all the sessions will be held at the Niagara-on-the-Lake branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

Unless things have changed, the large meeting room that is on the second floor, up a long flight of stairs is inaccessible.
In today’s world, where inclusivity is one of our operative words, I find this really unacceptable, particularly when other options like the NOTL Community Centre exist.
I suspect a large number of people will be left out of important discussions that will ultimately affect the way they live.
