We’ll do it live!

Today is the day! Our first live radio show of the season will air at noon today on CKCU’s 93.1 FM. Our reporters have been working all week to bring you the latest news and current affairs. From cows making an appearance on parliament hill, to Nobel-nominated professors – an exciting show is in store.

With the election in only 19 days, we’ll be covering the issue of strategic voting. Reporter Jenn Ko spoke to NDP candidate Marlene Rivier and Green Party candidate Mark Brooks of Ottawa-West Nepean.

Ko also followed up with Ecology Ottawa, an organization dedicated to asking people to “vote for the environment,” meaning the party in their riding that they think can defeat the Conservatives, who they believe to be anti-environment. We’ll find out what that’s all about soon.

Carleton hosted a second all-candidates debate for Ottawa Central, where youth voter issues were much of the focus. Reporter Alexis Ferrier will give you the scoop about the fight-night hosted by Carleton’s student association.

More on the election is coverage of the Carleton University Students Association Register to Vote campaign. Check out their “Vote Mob” video here:

Stay tuned for this and more at noon on 93.1 FM or listen to the podcast here on midweekradio.com later!
