Ottawa Centre – All Candidates Debate

All Candidates Debate – Ottawa Centre – September 13th, 2021

Your local community associations will be hosting an All Candidates Debate on September 13th from 7 to 9 pm on Zoom Webinar.  As well, we are looking at recording the debate and posting it on YouTube afterwards.  We are pleased to say that we are expecting all 8 candidates running for MP in Ottawa Centre to participate in our debate. 

How to Attend the Debate

We are not taking registrations in advance as there will be no need to register to attend.   We have taken out a special platform for this debate that can support up to 1000 attendees.  This platform will also allow us to provide closed captioning.

While the webinar will begin at 7:00 pm, you may sign in earlier.  Attendees will not, however, be let into the debate until just prior to 7:00 pm.

To attend the debate, please link to Zoom Webinar at:

How to submit a question to the Debate

Given the format of the debate, we are requesting that you submit your questions in advance.   Your questions will be provided to the moderator.  For security reasons attendees will not be able to directly ask their questions live as would usually happen at an in-person debate.

Please submit your questions to ottawacentreelectiondebate@hamptoniona.ca

Given the number of candidates expected to participate and in order to maximize the number of questions that the public can ask, questions can only be directed to two candidates.   This is similar to our previous live debate formats.  Please specify to which candidate or candidates (choice of 2 candidates) your question is directed.

Please keep questions concise and focused on Federal issues. Do not include a preamble.

Please submit your questions by Friday, September 10th. For technical reasons, questions submitted after that time are unlikely to be included.

Further Information

If you have questions about the debate, please send them to ottawacentreelectiondebate@hamptoniona.ca.   We also recommend that you check the Hampton Iona website http://hamptoniona.ca  periodically in case there are further updates.
