The byelection on Calumet Island is underway and candidates are busy pounding the pavement and knocking on doors, with an eye for council seat four. The spot was left vacant earlier this year when former councillor Patrice Dumouchel resigned, citing health reasons.
The advance poll will take place on Sunday, July 8 at the Municipal Hall, located at 8 rue Mgr Martel from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Regular polling will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday July 15, with preliminary results being announced later that evening. The official result will be made public on Monday July 16.
The Equity caught up with three of the four candidates to get their their views on where the Island should be headed. Despite multiple requests for interview, candidate Adrienne Turgeon did not respond back in time for print.
