The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce’s, Strive: Young Professionals Group (Strive YPG) in partnership with SooToday and DIG, are hosting a Political Information Night on Thursday, May 24 at 6 p.m. upstairs at Low and Slow restaurant. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with speakers taking the stage at 6 p.m.

Last year for the MPP byelection, voter turnout was just under 44 per cent, and Strive noticed a gap in their young professional membership in “not voting” as they did not know how each party’s platform would impact them.

In an effort to better inform their membership, Strive YPG has arranged for current SSM MPP, and PC candidate Ross Romano, Liberal candidate Jaclynn Hamel, NDP candidate, Michele McCleave-Kennedy, Green Party candidate, Kara Flannigan, and Northern Ontario Party candidate, Sandra Holmberg to pitch their platforms to a group of young professionals, followed by a Question and Answer period.

Tickets for the event are free of charge, but space is limited.
