The MCA, with Varsity and University Heights, is hosting an all-candidates forum on Sunday, October 6, from 2-4 p.m., at the Varsity Community Centre (4303 Varsity Drive NW).  Ward 1 has an open seat, following Councillor Hodges’ retirement, and several candidates are running.  This is a great chance to get to know them and their positions.  Hope to see you there.
