Voters prepare for election day

After the longest federal election campaign since 1872, local voters have had months to make up their minds before the Oct. 19 vote.

But just in case anyone in Beaches-East York or Scarborough Southwest needs a refresher before the 12-hour polls open at 9:30 a.m. Monday, here is a round-up of local campaign coverage.

Candidates for the four major parties running in Beaches-East York answered six short questions from the Beach Metro News, including what past career or life experience makes them the best choice for MP.

All four major-party candidates running in Scarborough Southwest answered the same questionnaire.

Beach Metro News also sat down with each of the major-party candidates in Beaches-East York for a story published midway through the campaign.

A more recent story covered the two independent and one Marxist-Leninist candidate running in the riding.

To hear the Beaches-East York candidates speak at length about the issues, video and a wrap-up story from the Sept. 29 debate hosted by Beach Metro News and Community Centre 55 remains available on our website.

Voters can also go to YouTube to watch the recent Beaches-East York and Scarborough Southwest debates that were broadcast by Rogers TV.
