PKAR’s All Candidates Meeting was held on Wednesday May 16, 2018 at the Peterborough Lions Community Centre in East City. The purpose of this meeting was to give the general public an opportunity to engage with the candidates of this years upcoming election and gain a further understanding of their plans for our city, if they were to become elected.
In attendance were Gianne Broughton – Green Party Candidate, Jeff Leal – Ontario Liberal Party Candidate, Dave Smith – PC Party of Ontario Candidate, and Sean Conway – NDP Candidate. The candidates were asked questions on a variety of topics including addressing the shortage of available serviced buildings in the city, their plan to support more housing choices and supply, whether or not they support an increase of the Land Transfer Tax for First-Time Home Buyers, and more.
PKAR was represented by 2018 President Kristi Doyle, President-Elect & Government Relations Chair Cathy Burningham, and Executive Officer Kathy Belanger.

We would also like to thank everyone in attendance for showing continued support and interest in the upcoming plans for our city. Your city is our city!
