Incumbent Mayor Sam Katz and challenger Judy Wasylycia-Leis will take part in a Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce Mayoral Forum on Wednesday at Canad Inns Polo Park.

Winnipeg Free Press columnist Dan Lett will moderate the 90-minute forum with a media panel consisting of CBC Radio morning host Terry MacLeod, Global TV reporter Jeff Keele and Winnipeg Free Press City Hall reporter Bartley Kives.

“This Forum will give the two candidates an opportunity to outline their vision for the City of Winnipeg to a crowd of almost 300 business leaders,” said Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Dave Angus. “It will also give voters valuable insight into where each candidate stands on important issues like crime, transportation, government spending, infrastructure and accountability and transparency at City Hall.”

The forum is sponsored by CAA Manitoba and Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface and will begin at approximately 12:10 p.m., following a luncheon.

Voters head to the polls on October 27.
