 It is with great disappointment that RNAO Kingston Chapter must cancel the All Candidates Event that was scheduled for September 27 from 2:30-4:30 pm at the Kingston Public Library. All candidates were invited and encouraged to reach out and speak to Kingston residents about healthcare. Mr. Beals and Mr. Townend confirmed their willingness to attended, Mr. Brooke did not respond to the invitation and Mr. Gerretsen declined to participate if all candidates were not in attendance.


INFORMATION UPDATE: RNAO Kingston Chapter has invited all Kingston and the Islands Federal Election candidates to participate in a debate on health care issues. We are currently awaiting candidate responses and will keep you informed if this event is to take place.
