Local youth can come face-to-face with those wanting to represent them in Ottawa.

In preparation for the federal election, JCI Vernon and the Vernon Students Association at Okanagan College will host a youth and young-adult focused all candidates forum Sept. 25

“JCI Vernon and the VSAOC intend to educate and empower local youth to exercise their right to vote,” said Sue Solymosi, JCI president.

“With four brand new faces vying for a seat in Parliament, it is the youth of the Okanagan who can really make a difference in this election.”

The forum takes place at the Vernon college campus, with doors opening at 5 p.m. and the discussion starting at 6 p.m. Items will be collected for the food bank during the forum.
