Rupertites had an opportunity to meet and hear from the eight candidates vying for a seat at the council table on Monday night.
Barry Cunningham, Blair Mirau, Charmayne Carlson, Gurvinder Randhawa, Nick Adey, Reid Skelton-Morven, Sarah Dantzer and Wade Niesh all participated in the All Candidates Forum at the Lester Centre.
A meet and greet was held at 6:30 p.m. before the candidates moved to main auditorium for the debate portion of the evening.
In what was described by spectators as a relatively agreeable debate, the participants discussed topics like the Port Tax Cap, the Ridley Island Tax Share Agreement, LNG and propane prospects, waterfront access, the governance of marijuana and many more.
Check out the Northern Views podcast on Thursday for one-on-one interviews with the candidates following the debate.
