West Island mayoral candidate debates: Beaconsfield and Hampstead
MONTREAL – Focus Montreal looks towards the West Island in a series of four mini-debates Saturday, October 19 and Saturday, October 26, as Global Montreal’s Senior Anchor Jamie Orchard takes a careful look at the issues and preoccupations facing residents of the de-merged cities.
On Saturday, October 26, the four mayoralty candidates from Beaconsfield will debate the issues facing that town such as managing the town’s budget in an open and transparent manner and what to do about proposed development of the beloved Angell Woods nature trails.
Tune in to hear what first time candidates Georges Bourelle and James Bonnell, repeat mayoralty candidate Hela Labene, and councillor turned mayoralty candidate Rhonda Massad have to say about the future of this picturesque suburb of 19,000 residents.
Also invited on Saturday, October 26th are the two mayoral candidates from Hampstead, Bill Steinberg and Bonnie Feigenbaum. Former colleagues on council, Feigenbaum is battling to unseat the incumbent Steinberg who has been mayor of Hampstead for the past 8 years.
The two will debate the issues that affect the town, which include spending your tax dollars wisely, and deciding which infrastructure projects will be a priority for the small town of 7,000 residents which sits right in the centre of the Island of Montreal.
The four frontrunners in the Montreal mayoral race have promised to work with the de-merged cities to develop harmonious relations – but who will they be working with on the West Island and in the West End?
What can the prospective mayors of Beaconsfield and Hampstead do to help their citizens have a bigger voice in Montreal politics?
Tune in to Focus Montreal this weekend to find out on Saturday, October 26th at 5:30 p.m., and Sunday, October 27th at 11:30 a.m. and again at midnight.
