Watch as we team up with Rogers to talk politics over beers with the candidates

Check out our new election video series where we sat down with the candidates (at least those who agreed to play along) to talk about the campaign, the issues and to get to know them a little better

Sudbury.com and Rogers Radio teamed up this month for a new election video series we're calling Pints & Politics.

Sudbury.com and Rogers Radio teamed up this month for a new election video series we're calling Pints & Politics.

The idea was simple: to get to know the candidates in a new way. Election interviews often come across very stiff and scripted as candidates struggle to portray a certain image.

We wanted to meet the candidates in a neutral location, over beer, and hope that the person behind the candidate came to the fore. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't, but we had a lot of fun getting to know them.

In a kind of good cop, bad cop routine, Sudbury.com editor Mark Gentili asked more serious, policy-driven questions, while Nick Liard, news director for 92.7 Rock and KiSS 105.3, asked lighter questions aimed at getting at the candidates' personalities.

All the videos we filmed are below as well as podcasts for each. Not all candidates were able to make themselves available.

Special thank you to the Taphouse for their hospitality.


Paul Lefebvre, Liberal candidate for Sudbury


Stef Paquette, NDP candidate for Nickel Belt


Beth Mairs, NDP candidate for Sudbury


Bill Crumplin, Green Party candidate for Sudbury


Pierre St. Amant, CPC candidate for Sudbury


Marc Serré, Liberal candidate for Nickel Belt

Sean Paterson, PPC candidate for Sudbury
