Dear Residents of Huron-Bruce Riding,

The Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the upcoming Provincial All Candidates Meeting. We are pleased to partner with the Kincardine Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Federation of University Women to stage the evening. Local Media have aided us in getting the word out to the public, and for that we thank them.

The Kincardine and Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce are nonpartisan and will not support any one candidate. Our role is to create a forum for candidates and the public to connect.

The rules for the meeting are on the bottom. Should you be unable to attend in person, but wish to submit a question please forward your question to joannerobbins@saugeenshores.ca . Questions will be compiled and forwarded to the moderator, John Divinski. Every effort will be made to include your question in the proceedings and/or be forwarded to the Candidates for comment.

Please feel free to contact Saugeen Shores General Manager, Joanne Robbins, or Kincardine General Manager, Terry Ann if you would like further information or want to discuss issues affecting you as a business owner or resident.
