An Address From The President

Oct 6, 2014 | G-BLOG | 0 comments

“Over the past 3 weeks I have interviewed on my talk show (Grapevine on G98.7FM) the three leading mayoral candidates for the City of Toronto. Olivia Chow appeared on September 21st, John Tory on September 28th and Doug Ford on October 5th. The intent of the interviews was not to challenge the candidates on statements made or positions taken, but to provide each the opportunity to engage with the listeners of the show.
This program also gave the opportunity to over 30 other candidates running for various positions in the Durham region, Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton. All were allowed to express themselves with the same freedom without challenging their positions or statements.
The same freedom that was expressed to Doug Ford was also granted to Olivia Chow and John Tory and surprisingly there was no negative feedback or criticisms from those interviews. It must be noted that G98.7FM or its Grapevine talk show program does not take political sides nor endorse candidates.
Finally, let me reiterate that the purpose of this program is not to challenge the candidates, but to give them a platform to express themselves freely and engage with the listeners.
