Ontario voters will decide on June 2 who will lead the province, and a week ahead of that, we want to give you a chance to see where local candidates stand on the issues: from emergency response and climate change to affordability and housing.

CBC Ottawa hosted a live debate with local candidates on Thursday, May 26 and took your questions on Facebook. You can watch it in the player above.

CBC Ottawa host Adrian Harewood will moderate the debate between candidates from the province's four major parties.

The candidates who joined us were:

  • Goldie Ghamari, the Progressive Conservative candidate in Carleton.

  • Chandra Pasma, the NDP candidate in Ottawa West-Nepean.

  • Stephen Blais, the Liberal candidate in Orléans.

  • Michelle Petersen, the Green Party candidate in Orléans.

The debate was broadcast on CBC Ottawa News at 6, after a local news update.
