Join Now What?! & Ottawa Council of Women
as we listen to Ottawa mayoral candidates discuss their perspectives on
gender-based issues relevant to the municipality.
Topics include housing, taxation, transit, policing, Indigenous relations,
child care, Sanctuary Cities and the need for an Ottawa Women's Bureau. 9 out
of 12 mayoral candidates have confirmed their participation - we are awaiting
the confirmation of the remaining 3.
Now What?! held a similar debate for the recent provincial election.
The sold out event demonstrated Ottawa citizens keen interest in what
candidates had to say on issues of gender-based violence and poverty. We expect
greater attendance at this debate given the importance of the topics, and the
fact that women & people of diversity are traditionally a small minority of
elected council members. Ensuring the (soon to be) elected Mayor of Ottawa is
committed to a gender balanced lens on ALL decisions made by the city is
crucial. It is the only way we will create a truly diverse, inclusive and
equitable city for everyone.
