On August 31st, the #KeepTransitMoving campaign hosted a panel on transit issues that should be discussed in the election. It was co-hosted by a number of transit advocacy groups, including the Ottawa Transit Riders. Three panelists: Elizabeth May, Green Party Candidate for Saanich – Gulf Islands and former leader of the Green Party of Canada, Avi Lewis, NDP Candidate for West Vancouver – Sunshine Coast - Sea to Sky Country, and Jonathan Wilkinson, Liberal Party Candidate for North Vancouver and Environment Minister took turns answering questions about public transit.
