Challenge for candidates

The Capital News is giving local neighbourhood and business groups a chance to voice their civic election issue concerns.

The Capital News will publish a series of stories leading up to the election that allow prominent local neighbourhood and business groups to voice their civic election issue concerns.

We invite the council candidates to respond to those issues online at our website, We will publish the candidates’ responses in upcoming Capital News editions up to Nov. 18.

To respond, candidates can scroll to the bottom of a story. There will be a section called comments where your responses can be posted online.

However, to do so you will need a Disqus account.

Click on the Disqus link on the top right of the comment box. From there, it’s going to ask you to use your email to create a user name. We recommend you use your actual name because this could be a way to get a message out to the electorate.

Comment to your heart’s content, but only once. This isn’t a chance to snipe, just communicate.
