Federal leadership debate weekend!
The only Atlantic Leadership Debate in the ongoing race to find a federal leader is this Sunday in St. John’s. Over the weekend, you have the opportunity to get together with your fellow NL New Democrats, see the contenders up close and personal, and hear firsthand what they each have to say about the issues facing our country.
The Debate is Sunday, June 11 at 3:00 pm at the St. John’s Convention Centre, 50 New Gower Street.
But wait! There's more!
Why have just a debate when you can socialize as well, right? You're also invited to meet the candidates at the individual events they are hosting.
Three candidates are having meet-and-greet events on Saturday, June 10, the day before the debate. (Yes, it's timed so you can get to all of them!)
Guy Caron will be at the Fifth Ticket on Water Street from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday.
Niki Ashton will be at Kelly's Pub on George Street from 6-8 p.m. Saturday.
Peter Julian will be at the Ship Pub (between Duckworth and Water) from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday.
Charlie Angus looks forward to meeting you after the debate on Sunday. Charlie will be at Yellowbelly Brewery on Water Street from 5:30-7:30. p.m.
Find out about the candidates, where they stand on issues, and what they're up to on the federal NDP website.
We’re excited about the race and the quality of the candidates. Let's help build the energy! Welcome the Leadership contenders to St. John's with a good turnout at the debate and the hospitality we are known for.
See you there!
