Election 2014: Forum dates set

City of Vernon/District of Coldstream: Performing Arts Centre hosts forum for Vernon and Coldstream candidates

  • Oct. 15, 2014 10:00 a.m.

Greater Vernon residents will have a chance to attend two election forums at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre.

There will be a forum for Vernon council candidates Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. and for Coldstream candidates Oct. 30 at 7 p.m.

“The forums provide an opportunity for candidates to state their platforms, and for the public to ask questions both in written form and open mic,” said Brian van Wensem, with the Performing Arts Centre.

There will be no cost for forum participants or audience members, although donations will be accepted for the centre’s children’s theatre fund.

Any donations made will be matched by the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Society and used to purchase children’s theatre tickets that will be distributed to families otherwise unable to attend performances.
