The race is on!

In the final weeks before General Voting Day, Victoria mayoral candidates Lisa Helps, Stephen Hammond, Bruce McGuigan, and Mike Geoghegan are gearing up for the big fight.

Tomorrow, October 10th, marks the advanced voting day for all eligible electors – which also happens to be the date set for a public debate featuring all four contenders.

Each candidate will be presenting their platforms and participating in a debate with pre-selected questions moderated by Joe Perkins from CTV Vancouver Island.

The event will take place at the Victoria Event Centre and is hosted by the Victoria Downtown Residents Association, and the Downtown Victoria Business Association.
