Candidates forum scheduled for Vernon

Meet your candidates and ask your questions on Oct. 8

The Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce and Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre are teaming up next month to give residents a chance to meet their candidates.

“We are excited to bring together residents and business leaders so they can hear directly from the individuals wanting to represent us in Ottawa, and to pose questions of relevance to our region and country,” said Vernon Chamber of Commerce general manager Dione Chambers.

Candidates will provide an introduction of themselves and answer questions from sponsor organizations, including the B.C. Fruit Growers Association, and provide an opportunity for the public to put forward their own questions.

Admission to the event, which opens its doors at 6:30 p.m., is free, but donations to the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society’s youth programs or bursary fund will be appreciated.

The forum will take place in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on Oct. 8, 2019.
