Final forums draw near

There are Vernon-Monashee candidate forums Wednesday and Thursday

There are two final chances to hear from the candidates in Vernon-Monashee.

​​​An all-candidates forum will be held at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre today at 7 p.m.

“Audience members will have the chance to submit questions into a draw box before the forum as well as during a brief intermission,” said Keelan Murtagh, executive director.

“The moderator will also take a live question from the audience.”

Doors open at 6 p.m. and there will be two portions about 45 minutes in length, with a 15-minute intermission. The event is free but non-perishable food items will be collected for the food bank.

On Thursday at 6 p.m., Independent Living Vernon will host a forum at the People Place.

“The focus is on issues pertaining to people with a variety of disabilities,” states a release.
