Twittering the Vancouver Election

For those living in Vancouver, or interested in Vancouver politics, the CBC will be hosting a debate tomorrow between Vision Vancouver Mayoralty candidate Gregor Robertson and his NPA counterpart.

For those listening in on or attending the debate, the CBC is interested in hearing your immediate thoughts and feedback via twitter – simply tag your tweet: #cbcmayorsdebate and the CBC may pick it up. Thoughtful comments about Gregor, concerns about the city, or respectfully expressed concerns about NPA spin are particularly appreciated.

For those interested in the debate it is taking place tomorrow, Wednesday, November 12, from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. at the SFU’s Segal Graduate School of Business, 500 Granville St.. It will also be broadcast live on CBC Radio One (690AM) in Vancouver and streamed live over “the interweb” at cbc.ca/bc.

    Good luck to your party David. They are both good candidates in my opinion – not without their flaws.I like the comparison that has been made in the local rags – one has no vision, but lots of experience in the nitty gritty while one has vision but no experience. It certainly showed in the debates I have attended. I suspect the truth lies somewhere in between. Also I should add that there has been near universal praise for the Vision backing team (you guys) from the local policy wonks who I hear from on occasion.Bon chance
