Federal election candidates will need to think on their feet during the Salmon Arm All Candidates Forum hosted by the Salmon Arm Chamber of Commerce.

While each candidate will be given a chance to craft an opening and closing statement, much of the time will be devoted to public questions that the candidates will not have heard beforehand.

That being said, there will not be an open microphone for those in attendance to ask questions; instead, the chamber is accepting questions from the public.

The questions will be compiled into categories and condensed into as succinct a format as possible. The chamber board will review and select the questions based on all the submissions received.

Questions can be submitted online at

The candidates forum will take place on Thursday, Sept. 17 at the SASCU Recreation Centre auditorium from 6 to 8 p.m.
