Date set for Prince Rupert all-candidates forum

The Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an all-candidates forum this Wednesday.

Prince Rupert residents will have the opportunity to question the provincial election candidates at a forum hosted by the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce at the Lester Centre of the Arts on Wednesday, April 24.

The event will start at seven p.m. Candidates Hondo Arendt of the Green Party, Judy Fraser of the BC Liberal Party, and Jennifer Rice of the NDP have all confirmed their attendance.

The format for this moderated meeting will allow for a combination of questions from a panel and questions from the floor via written entries. The event has been sponsored by Prince Rupert Grain and the BC Northern Real Estate Board and will include refreshments for the attendants.

“We are pleased to be able to support the democratic process and to offer the community the opportunity to engage with the candidates and gain an understanding of each parties’ platforms,” said Chamber manager Simone Clark.
