There will be more than 40 chances to see Toronto's top five mayoral candidates debate in person before the Oct. 27 municipal election, but tonight's debate isn't one of them. It's only open to those who live in the neighbourhood of East York.
Anyone coming to watch Rob Ford, Olivia Chow, John Tory, David Soknacki and Karen Stintz debate will have to show proof of residency for the area of Parkview Hills in East York.
- Watch the debate live on CBC.ca starting around 7:30 p.m. And click here to watch it on a mobile device.
This will likely exclude some of the candidates' supporters, who made their presence known at the last debate in Scarborough by booing and cheering so loudly the moderator had to ask for quiet on several occasions.
Ford Nation supporters were particularly boisterous at the last debate.
Tonight's debate is being hosted by the Parkview Hills Community Association.
