The future of local hospitals and transportation were two of the hot topics during last night’s all candidates district councillor debate in Bracebridge. Nearly 140 people came out to Riverside Inn to ask candidates tough questions. Steve Clement received applause for his passion for keeping both the Bracebridge and Huntsville hospitals as is acknowledging the expense to run both, but saying that the people in our Towns deserve it. Meanwhile in local transportation, Ian Wallace got some support and even a chuckle for his suggestion of partnering up with Santa’s Village to offer year round transportation. He even went as far to say that Santa Claus could be one of the bus drivers. Tonight, the mayoralty candidate debate is going on at Riverside Inn in Bracebridge at 7pm.
