Event description

Description

According to a recent United Way report (United Way, The Opportunity Equation. Toronto, 2015), the City of Toronto risks becoming the income inequality capital of Canada, with the gap between rich and poor households in the city widening at double the national pace. Toronto’s growing income divide risks dampening social mobility, weakening community bonds, and undermining economic stability while also being a major issue in terms of public health and a potential factor in increasing inequalities in the health outcomes of Torontonians. How would the Candidates of University-Rosedale, a central downtown Toronto riding, represent and address these issues within the federal government, should they be elected members of the House of Commons of the 42nd Parliament of Canada on 19 October?

Invited Candidates:

Chrystia Freeland, Liberal Party of Canada

Jennifer Hollett, New Democractic Party of Canada

Karim Jivraj, Conservative Party of Canada*

Nick Wright, Green Party of Canada

*Yet to confirm.

Moderator: Michael Valpy, Senior Fellow, Massey College, Journalist.

Sponsors: Beyond the Headlines, Massey College, Ontario College of Family Physicians, School of Public Policy and Governance, SPPG Students' Association.
