WINNIPEG — Five Winnipeg mayoral candidates excluded from Wednesday’s CBC debate had their chance to sway voters during an alternative debate on Thursday night.
Hue Productions hosted the Equate Debate from 6:30-7:30 p.m. ChrisD.ca was the media sponsor of the debate and carried the live stream, which you can watch a replay of below:
Participating candidates included Idris Adelakun, Rana Bokhari, Chris Clacio, Rick Shone and Don Woodstock. Candidate Jenny Motkaluk notified organizers shortly before the debate was to begin that she would be unable to attend.
University of Manitoba professor Dr. Royce Koop acted as moderator for the evening.
The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce was also an event sponsor.
Wednesday’s CBC debate included candidates Scott Gillingham, Kevin Klein, Shaun Loney, Glen Murray, and Robert-Falcon Ouellette. The network made a decision to only include those who were polling above 10 percent, factoring in the margin of error, in a late September Probe Research poll.
Election day is October 26.
