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.

“It’s going to be a really interesting debate forum, so I hope everyone can attend, but come early. I know the Lester Centre is quite large, but there is going to be a lot of interest this year,” he said.

Look for more details on the forum in the Oct. 22 issue of the Northern View.
