Four of the nine candidates running for mayor were invited to the event, including Evelyn Dutrisac, Paul Lefebvre, Miranda Rocca-Circelli and Mila Wong. To determine the participating candidates, the Chamber polled its members and the five with the most votes were selected to participate.

Current mayor Brian Bigger had also been invited, but announced on Tuesday that he had been ruled out of the election for family reasons.

“The Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce urges voters in this community to exercise their option on October 24,” said Anthony Davis, Board Chair. “We hope this event will help Sudburians be better informed about the issues and what these five mayoral candidates can bring to the table.

Jessica Pope, public affairs strategist at NOSM University and former CBC reporter, will serve as moderator for this year’s event.

With an annual budget of more than $660 million and a population of 165,000, the city’s next mayor must have a vision and a plan to move Greater Sudbury forward, Davis said. Leadership is a top priority for the more than 700 members of the Chamber, and they want to see leaders on council who will shape policies that support the conditions for growth and investment in this city.

The fireside chat takes place at Collège Boréal, in the concert hall, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
