|Prince Rupert's Lester Centre will be the host venue for the|
2019 Federal election All Candidate's Forum
Residents of the North Coast will have their chance to take the measure of the candidates in the Federal election campaign on Wednesday, October 9th.
That's the date reserved by the Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce and Toastmasters International for the Prince Rupert All Candidates Forum at the Lester Centre of the Arts.
Set to be in Prince Rupert early next month are: Taylor Bachrach (NDP), Dave Birdi (Liberals), Jody Craven (PPC), Claire Rattée (Conservative), Mike Sawyer (Green) and Rod Taylor (CHP).
will take to the Lester Centre Stage at 7PM with the forum offering them an opportunity to showcase their campaign themes and answer questions posed to them by forum moderators.
The Prince Rupert event, which is free to the public, is sponsored by Prince Rupert Grain, CityWest, The BC Northern Real Estate Board, EZRock and CFNR.
With the large territory that all six have to cover during the campaign, the October 9th event may mark the only opportunity for them to be in the same place, at the same time in Prince Rupert.
You can keep up to date on the planning for the debate through the Facebook page created by the Chamber for the event.
As we get closer to the debate, we'll explore the plans for the evening further.
For now, you can review some of the campaign themes through our archive page for Skeena Bulkley Valley here.
