Hear the candidates

  • Oct. 2, 2015 7:00 p.m.

The Shuswap District Retired Teachers Association will host  an all-candidates forum at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8 at the Seniors Fifth Avenue Activity Centre.

The focus of the forum will be on issues of concern to seniors, but other issues will be explored as time permits.

Written questions will be solicited from the audience to augment those from the association’s panel.

The forum has been scheduled as late as is practical in this election cycle in order to properly address late-breaking issues in the campaign, notes a Sept. 14 press release.

For more information, contact Larry Calvert at 250-675-5395.

Sicamous will have a forum on Oct. 5 at the Rec Centre from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

There will also be a forum on Oct.  7 at 7 p.m. at Sorrento Memorial Hall.
