For Immediate Release
October 6, 2008
(Halifax, NS) Mayoral Debate goes LIVE ONLINE!
Attention voters – the HRM Mayoral Candidates’ Forum on the Environment will go live to the Internet on Wednesday, October 8, thanks to the brand new Internet site, haligonia.ca.
haligonia.ca is not even a month old but is already making a difference to coverage of events in HRM and in the first 14 days has served up 360 thousand minutes of local content! This Wednesday, haligonia.ca takes another leap forward – streaming the entire debate and questions live for those who cannot get to Dalhousie at that time of day.
Not only will you be able to watch the whole debate, you can also post your comments on the haligonia.ca site. You can even offer up a question to the candidates. Due to time constraints only one question will be chosen, but the comments page is open to everyone.
Hosted in partnership with Sierra Club and the Halifax Student Alliance, the subject of this forum is the Environment. Candidates David Boyd, Sheila Fougere and Peter Kelly will discuss issues around environment and sustainability in the municipal context.
The live event runs 10:00 am to11:30 am in Theatre A, Tupper Building, Dalhousie University, or simply type haligonia.ca into your computer and get a ringside seat at the event, watching it live online.
Haligonia.ca is a new online broadcaster that provides a unique window of opportunity on the local scene – entertainment, community news, reviews, business, music, fashion and more. It’s provocative, entertaining and informative … giving a voice back to the citizens of HRM. The format for producing video on haligonia.ca uses real people on the street to capture human interest stories and real-time images about issues that are of interest to people in this city. User-submitted content via webcams and viewers’ live content are available online.
