Mayor Sam Katz has turned down another invitation to a mayoral forum.

North End Votes, a coalition of organizations and residents in the North End, said Katz has declined its invitation to a mayoral forum at the Indian and Metis Friendship Centre on Oct. 18.

The group says the other three mayoral candidates — Judy Wasylycia-Leis, Brad Gross and Rav Gill — have said they will attend.

The event, at 45 Robinson St., begins with a free dinner at 5:30 p.m.

Earlier this week, Katz was criticized after he declined to go to a debate on poverty and housing put on by the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, the Aboriginal Council of Winnipeg, Make Poverty History, and Winnipeg Harvest. The mayor said he had a prior obligation.
