String of Northwest debates to make up home stretch of 2015 Election campaign

These final couple of weeks of the Federal election campaign will find a number of the candidates in Skeena-Bulkley Valley making what amounts to a barnstorming tour of the Northwest and Haida Gwaii this week and next.

The dash to the electoral finish line finds most of the candidates pencilled in for a number of community debates set up for this week and into the early portion of October.

Tomorrow night four of the candidates will be at Smithers Della Herman Theatre for the All Candidates Forum in that community that event starts at 7 PM.

From the Bulkley Valley, most of the candidates will be heading west for a pair of events on Haida Gwaii on October 1st and 2nd with events scheduled for both the North and South Island, with the October 1st event taking place from 6 to 8 PM at the Haida Heritage Centre.

One night later the group will convene on the North Island, meeting October 2nd at the Howard Phillips Community Hall from 6 to 8 PM.

Conservative candidate Tyler Nesbitt won't be making the trip to Haida Gwaii, owing to a previous engagement.

Haida Gwaii to hold first ever all candidates debate

As we outlined on the blog last week, Prince Rupert hosts its debate night on October 7th, when the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce presents an opportunity to learn more about where the candidates in Skeena-Bulkley Valley stand on a number of local issues.

That event takes place at the Lester Centre starting at 6 PM.

The candidates, should be in top debating form by the time that they make their stop in Prince Rupert, with Terrace hosting their event one night earlier, on Tuesday, October 6th at the REM Lee Theatre.

The candidates have already worked out some of their talking points for the campaign, with the majority of them having toured the eastern half of the riding over the last week, with debates taking place in Burns Lake and Fort St. James in recent days.

You can review some of the talking points of the campaign to date from our Election 2015 archive page.
