Audio - Calgary Centre-North Riding Debate

As a voter I've been frustrated during my last-minute-scramble to edumicate myself about local candidates before I run out to the polling station. (Citizenship is only something we need to worry about during an election after all.)

That's when I find there is nothing online. For federal parties and candidates, yes. But not a lot local ridings. There are only 308 federal ridings in Canada. How much effort would it take to videotape every debate and post them online, assuming one person from each riding took responsibility? Not a lot.

But technical hurdles and manpower might not be the ultimate obstacle to complete coverage of these events.
