IN THE NEWS: RRRA MAYORAL DEBATE

September 24th, 2014

OTTAWA – The Rideau River Residence Association (RRRA) hosted the first Mayoral Debate of the Ottawa 2014  Municipal Elections. Anwar Syed, Jim Watson, and Mike Maguire were present to discuss with students about public transit, student jobs, housing, and the future of Ottawa.

The debate was moderated by Carleton Professor and Ottawa Citizen columnist, Andrew Cohen.

“This was a great night which brought together candidates, students, faculty and our Ottawa community neighbours for a conversation about the future of our city”, said William Verschuren, president of RRRA.

CBC Ottawa, CTV Ottawa, The Ottawa Citizen, The Ottawa Sun and 580 CFRA Radio were some of the media present for the debate.

The debate was professionally put together to make sure Carleton displayed its facilities appropriately. RRRA would like to thank Carleton Conference Services, Carleton’s Department of Communications, and Professor Andrew Cohen for their support.
