Thanks everyone!

We aren’t going to lie, we were a little nervous about how it would go. After all, this hasn’t been done before.
For the first time, Pontiac residents will elect their warden on Nov. 5 and THE EQUITY hosted an English-language debate featuring all five candidates.
The turnout was impressive. More than 100 people filled the auditorium at Pontiac High School and settled in for a night of municipal politics – a reassuring sign that there is a healthy interest in municipal politics.
This comes at a crucial time. During the last municipal election in the Pontiac, nearly 60 per cent of the seats were won by acclamation – meaning there was only one candidate.
While the number of candidates improved this time around, they could still be higher. But we’re doing better than many other municipalities in Quebec.
