Peel Region residents from Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon represent approximately 4% of Canada’s population (just under 11% of Ontario). The 12 Federal seats in the region feature 3 new ridings and together comprises almost 1.5 million constituents. Battleground Ontario starts in Peel, yet the general media’s election night coverage features mostly national results and perspectives.
Brampton Focus, and Mississauga Connects, both independent grass roots community based organizations realized that the region’s electorate was void of a dedicated riding by riding hyper local coverage of these 12 important federal seats.
“Peel deserves dedicated election coverage of our 12 Federal riding results on election night. We want relevant discussion focused on our local issues with live voting results as they come in. Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon currently have no dedicated TV coverage on election night and we intend to change and improve that”
Donald Mcleod, Co-Founder of Brampton Focus
A team of over 26 professionals and concerned residents are volunteering time, money, television expertise and technology to create a multi-camera TV studio to host a 4 hour live independent election night streaming broadcast. The broadcast will feature multiple political insider guests, interviews from riding halls and candidates, with up-to-the-minute vote results. A legion of on-site volunteer reporters via smart phone technology are integrated live into the broadcast delivering exclusive and engaging local coverage. Accessible and free to residents with an internet connection.
With on-line viewing becoming the future of broadcast, and those who watch conventional broadcasts having a media device open simultaneously, this hyper local interactive coverage by a grass-roots non broadcast voluntary entity is what the future promises to deliver…. today!
