Central Ontario voters air their concerns on The Agenda with Steve Paikin

    Thursday September 13, 2007, at 8 pm, repeated 11 pm on TVO

    TORONTO, Sept. 12 /CNW/ - What are the issues Ontarians will be thinking
about as they cast their votes in the upcoming provincial election? On
Thursday September 13 The Agenda with Steve Paikin heads to central Ontario:
Ontario's rural heartland; cottage country; and paradoxically, a region
including two of the province's fastest growing urban centres, Barrie and
Peterborough. The issues here are agriculture, transportation, health care and
faith-based schools.
    Special guests include:
      -  Aileen Carroll, former cabinet minister and current Liberal
         candidate for Barrie
      -  Nancy Morrison, NDP candidate in York-Simcoe
      -  Laurie Scott, Conservative MPP for Haliburton-Victoria-Brock
      -  Jim Hendry, editorial page editor for The Peterborough Examiner

    This is the second of six programs in the period leading up to the
election that focus on issues in different regions of Ontario. Eastern Ontario
was featured last week, and later programs will consider northern Ontario, the
greater Toronto area, Toronto, and southwestern Ontario.
    The Agenda with Steve Paikin's extensive election coverage continues
online. Viewers can also go to tvo.org/agenda, where they can submit questions
regarding election issues from their region and contribute to dedicated blogs.
Steve Paikin, as always, welcomes comments; Queen's Park bureau chief Susanna
Kelley moderates "Ontario Politics Uncovered," a blog focusing on issues from
various regions; producer Mike Miner overlooks "The Fifth Column," which
offers analysis on the day's headlines and inside reports on the latest web
tricks the parties have employed to win the hearts, minds and hard drives of
the electorate.
    The Agenda with Steve Paikin is TVO's flagship current affairs show
airing weekdays at 8 pm, repeating at 11 pm and 5 am the following morning.
