Our Toronto public affairs group leader Geoff Owen was invited to appear on Rogers TV Toronto Headlines this week to participate in a panel discussion about the inaugural Toronto mayoral debate. Alongside other leading pundits from the Toronto political community, Geoff gave his thoughts on how each of the five candidates acquitted themselves and how incumbent Rob Ford deflected much of the attention lobbed at him.

The full program is available for viewing on the Rogers TV website.

The Toronto public affairs team also conducted a social media study to see which candidates and issues received the most attention via Twitter on “Debate Day”. Their findings can be found here.
