Cancellation of candidates’ debate

Following the low participation rate of the population for the candidates’ debate of the electoral riding of Brome- Missisquoi that was to take place on March 31 at 6:30 at the Théâtre des tournesols, we would like to inform you that the three boards of the Chambers of Commerce of Cowansville, Farnham and Brome Lake have taken the decision to cancel this event.

This decision is also based on the fact that many meetings were set up in the last few days by organizations across the constituency to which the population will have the chance to attend. In addition, after consultation with their members and various institutions, the three boards of the Chambers of Commerce came to the conclusion that the debate was no longer relevant for the reasons mentioned above.

The primary mission of our organizations is to prioritize its actions and respond to the needs and interests of their members. Therefore, if the interest for a debate is not shown, we have no choice but to cancel it.

For further information, please contact one of the following three officials:

Stewart Bacon
President of the Chamber of Commerce of Brome Lake

Hélène Paquette
President of the Chamber of Commerce and Cowansville and region
