Freshwater Issues and the Ontario Municipal Elections
The municipal elections take place this fall, with final voting on Oct 22, 2018.
We have prepared a few freshwater related questions that we've posted here, that could be asked of your candidates to help gauge their commitment to freshwater resources in Renfrew County. We've also posted the All Candidates meetings that we are aware of - your chance to ask your questions and see where you might place your vote.
