Issues facing those with disabilities are being brought to the forefront of the election campaign.
Independent Living Vernon hosts an all candidates forum Sept. 29 at the People Place at 6:30 p.m.
“Groups are concerned that issues with persons with disabilities has not even been on the radar with any of the parties,” said Lisa Kongsdorf, with IL Vernon.
The forum is an opportunity to find out where the candidates stand on disability issues.
Those in attendance will also be able to tell the candidates what issues they believe need to be addressed in the election.
The forum is supported by the Kindale Developmental Association, Brain Trust Canada, the Canadian Mental Health Association, the North Okanagan Neurological Association, Mental Illness Family Support, the Vernon MS Society and the Tier Support Services Employment Support Program.
