NANAIMO – April 11, 2017
CHAMBER HOSTS PROVINCIAL ALL-CANDIDATES FORUM — WITH COMMUNITY PARTNERS
The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the Nanaimo riding All Candidates Debate and Independent Forum on Tuesday, April 25, 6 pm at Beban Park Social Centre. All three parties have agreed their candidates will be on hand – BC NDP’s Leonard Krog, BC Liberal Party’s Paris Gaudet, and BC Green Party candidate Kathleen Harris.
“The Chamber’s role as a non-partisan community organization is to focus on getting out the vote by promoting top-of-mind awareness around the issues, communicating updates on local information events, and organizing the widely-anticipated and independent All Candidates Meeting” according to Kim Smythe, Chamber President & CEO, “We’re pleased to welcome, as presenting partners this year, Vancouver Island University, Vancouver Island Real Estate Board and the Canadian Home Builders Association.”
The event is open to all community members with candidate information booths from 6 until 7 pm when the debate begins. Dr. Carrie Chassels, VIU’s appointee to the Chamber, will moderate. Q&A will be included with scrutineers screening questions for the candidates. Negotiations with Shaw TV are underway for cable TV coverage and repeat cablecasts.
