“The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce has been the host of political debates for numerous elections and we are expecting a lively discussion with the 2019 Federal Debate candidates,” stated Rakesh Naidu, President & CEO.

The Chamber is sending out a survey to seek input for the debate from the business community of Windsor-Essex. “This is our opportunity to raise awareness on issues that matter the most to the business community. We encourage the business community to provide input so that your suggestions and concerns can be communicated to the candidates,” said Naidu.

The debate will include candidates from all three Windsor and Essex County ridings. Each riding will be assigned a 30 minute debate. Due to time constraints, the four parties with the highest number of seats in the House of Commons have been invited. This includes: CPC, Liberals, NDP and Green Party.
