Riding Debates On Environment Moved To Oct. 3 After Conflict With Official Event

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 09 Aug, 2019
  • Riding Debates On Environment Moved To Oct. 3 After Conflict With Official Event

OTTAWA - More than 100 all-candidate election debates on the environment are being moved to a new date, after a scheduling conflict that originally put them on the same night as a televised leaders' debate.

 

GreenPAC, a non-partisan organization dedicated to electing environmentalist candidates, is helping to organize candidates' debates in 117 ridings.

 

The group announced in June those debates would take place Oct. 7, but were surprised by last month's news that an event organized by a government-created debates commission would be held that same day.

 

GreenPAC says the scheduling conflict goes against the mandate of the Leaders' Debates Commission to, as much as possible, not "preclude" other debates.

 

The two sides talked through several possible options to resolve the conflict, but GreenPAC has decided to reschedule its events to Oct. 3.

 

The group says organizers for many of the debates across the country will have to re-book venues and re-confirm candidates.
