She was Toronto’s chief planner for five years, known for being outspoken on what she felt was best for the city. Now, Jennifer Keesmaat is taking on John Tory to be mayor. Is she ready to serve as a politician instead of a bureaucrat?
Ask her yourself. Keesmaat will meet with the Toronto Star’s editorial board Thursday, Oct. 11 at 10 a.m., and we will livestream the conversation. She’ll answer questions from the editorial board, as well as our readers.
During municipal elections, the Star’s editorial board meets with mayoral candidates to find out where they stand on the issues most important to Torontonians. It helps the Star determine who, if anyone, it will endorse.
Email us your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to us on Facebook or Twitter. Then tune in live at thestar.com at 10 a.m. Thursday to watch the discussion.
You’ll have a chance to join us again when John Tory meets the editorial board on Oct. 16 at 1 p.m.
