Bialik High School, located at 6500 Kildare Road in Côte Saint-Luc District 2, will host a meet the candidates event on Wednesday, Sept. 30 (7 p.m.) in advance of the Oct. 19 federal election.
Mount-Royal riding candidates Anthony Housefather (Liberals), Robert Libman (Conservatives) and Mario Jacinto Rimbao (NDP) will take part in an event which is being closely tied to the Citizenship Education Program at JPPS-Bialik. Each candidate will give a five minute opening statement. That will be followed by questions from the audience, submitted in writing to Bialik students who will serve as partisan scrutineers and present them to moderator and school Principal Avi Satov. Candidates will have two minutes to respond to each query. While no signs or placards will be allowed in the room, supporters can wear buttons. Bialik will set up information tables in the hallway for each candidate.
Entry will be through the Mettarlin door from the rear parking lot.
The three candidates are also scheduled to debate on Thursday, Oct. 1 (7 p.m) in Town of Mount Royal.
