More Trinity-Spadina debates

Just a quick post to let readers know about two all-candidates forums in the riding. I will be at both of them and will be sure to give you my impressions of Ianno's performance in both.

The first is tonight (late notice, I know - but y'all check this site obsessively, don't you?)

Tuesday, 10 January 2006, *7:30pm: Trinity Spadina Federal Election Candidate Forum at Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (SW corner of Bloor and Spadina). Sponsored by local business improvement area organizations

The second is on January 16th, at U of T's Hart House:

WHAT: Trinity-Spadina All-candidates Debate
WHEN: 6:30 pm on Monday January 16, 2006.
WHERE: The Great Hall, Hart House, 7 Hart House Circle.
This event is organized by the Hart House Debates Committee, Get Your Vote On, Canada 25 and the Hart House Social Justice Committee as part of the January 16th National Day of Action on Youth Voting. The Day of Action is part of national non-partisan effort to get voters to the polls.
I hope that a lot of students will attend the Hart House forum. I wonder if many of them are aware that Tony Ianno voted against an NDP bill that would have eliminated the discriminatory way that student loan debts are treated by bankruptcy law. Basically, if you are in debt on your credit cards, or car payments, going bankrupt will discharge those debts... but not student loan debt! No, you have to carry that debt for at least ten years.

Of interest to CBC union types, Tony voted against a bill that would ban scab workers in federally regulated industries - including broadcasting. Sort of tells you which side Tony was on in the recent labour lockout at Mother Corp.
