A date and location has been set for Prince Rupert’s all-candidates forum.

Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce president John Farrell announced at the Oct. 15 luncheon that the chamber — in partnership with the Prince Rupert Labour Council, Prince Rupert Grain and the B.C. Northern Real Estate Board — had secured a Nov. 4 date at the Lester Centre of the Arts. Doors for the event will open at 6:30 p.m. with the forum getting underway at 7 p.m.

The format of the forum is still to be determined, with more information expected later this week. However, people are being invited to provide their input on the forum through an online survey at
