Climate change is on the agenda at one of the first local all-candidates meetings in Bruce Grey Owen Sound.  

Five of the six federal candidates have said they'll attend Tuesday night's session.

Michael Den Tandt – Liberal
Danielle Valiquette – Green
Chris Stephen – NDP
Alex Ruff – Conservative
William Townsend – PPC 

The only candidate who can't attend is Libertarian, Dan Litttle, due to work schedule issues.  

The organizers, a non partisan group worried about the effects of climate change say they want to find out which candidates back Canada's "Green New Deal".  

There will be a public question and answer period.

Moderator Michael McLuhan will assist with format. 

The meeting is being held tonight at the Harmony Centre at 890 4th Ave East in Owen Sound from 7-9pm.  Doors open at 6:30pm    

The federal election is October 21st.
