Advance Voting Has Begun!

Advance voting for the Federal election has started.  Runs every day 9-9 for four days:  Friday, Oct. 11 through to and including Monday, Oct. 14.  If you are informed and know for whom you want to vote why not do so this weekend to avoid the rush on Oct. 21?  If you are still in research mode you may be interested to view the videos of the 2 debates which Concerned Citizens of King Township hosted; at time of writing the video for the Oct. 19 was uploaded and available for viewing.  I anticipate they will upload the second one held Oct. 10.  As noted on the CCKT website not all candidates participated in the events.

October 19: lots to do in King City

There is something for everyone Saturday, Oct. 19 in King City.

8-12 at the Municipal Centre there is the indoor garage sale!  Perhaps a unique gift can be found there.

11-3 at the Heritage and Cultural Centre there is a Heritage Harvest celebration.  As identified in the poster there are many things happening:  Holland Marsh Food market, music, kids’ activities to name a few.  Plus, the Walter Rollings school room is being re-opened.

1-2:30 there is the TRCA guided walk leaving from Kettle Lake Park as I have mentioned in another post.

2 pm at Hogan’s Inn there is a talk about the The Story of Joker’s Hill hosted by King Township Historical Society.  Its wise to purchase tickets in advance as I expect this event will be well attended.

Nature Walk with TRCA Saturday 10/19

Saturday Oct. 19th 1-2:30 pm there is a walk guided by TRCA leaving from Kettle Lake Park (south of King Road/east of Burns).  This is a wonderful way to experience and learn about the natural heritage in King City.  TRCA requests that you let them know of you intent to join the walk as there is a limitation on numbers. I am planning to take advantage of this opportunity.  More details here. 

Meet Federal Candidates

There is one more opportunity to meet the Federal Candidates:  Thursday, Oct. 10 7-9PM at Municipal Centre. This final event is hosted by CCKT.  Note:  All candidates have been invited; whether they choose to participate is unknown to me.

Meet the Federal Election Candidates

Our riding, the King -Vaughan one is extremely fortunate:  there are 3 all candidate meetings scheduled before the federal election on October 21.  First one is Tuesday Oct. 1 at Nobleton Community Centre (15d Old King Road, Nobleton) hosted by CCKT.  On Oct. 3 there is one at Municipal Centre (2585 King Rd., King City) hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.  And on Oct. 10 there is another one hosted by CCKT at the Municipal Centre in King City.
