With respect to the number of candidates, the Owen Sound & District Chamber of Commerce has created the following format in order to provide an opportunity for all candidates to be heard.
This necessitates time limits for each candidate’s response and the recognition that not every candidate will have the opportunity to answer every question that is asked. There simply is not enough time to cover all the topics while giving each candidate a chance to respond.
There will be 7 groups designated by the Mayor (1 group), Deputy Mayor (1 group)and Councillor (4 groups) of which the Councillor candidates will be split into 4 groups of 3 and 1 group of 4. The grouping of the Councillor candidates is by random draw by the candidates just prior to the start of the meeting.
Audience questions are to be submitted in writing (paper and pencils will be provided) and submitted to the moderator for random selection. Questions will be pre-screened only to ensure clarity of the question and to eliminate duplication.
