Lester Centre to host North Coast Election Debate October 7th
Event organizers, the Prince Rupert Chamber of commerce has scheduled the event for October 7th and have extended invitations to all of the declared candidates in the October 19th Federal Election.
Members of the local media will be providing some questions for the Candidates, followed by an opportunity for the audience to offer questions to the candidates in a moderated forum setting.
There's been a bit of a lull in campaign issues over the last few weeks, with only candidates Nathan Cullen and to a lesser degree Conservative Tyler Nesbitt having made much in the way of commentary on issues from across the region.
Less vocal on the campaign trail to this point have been Liberal candidate Brad Layton and the Christian Heritage Party's Don Spratt.
The Green Party only entered the race in Skeena-Bulkley Valley last week, when they announced the candidacy of Prince Rupert resident Jeannie Parnell.
The October 7th event starts at 6 PM and is sponsored by CityWest, the BC Northern Real Estate Board and Prince Rupert Grain.
The evening provides an opportunity for residents to have some of the issues of concern to the North Coast addressed by the candidates seeking our votes on October 19th.
No list of confirmed candidates has been released by the event organizers as of yet.
