Columbia River-Revelstoke forum set for May 2

Candidates are getting ready for all candidates forum in Golden.

Don’t miss your chance to hear the three candidates for the Columbia River-Revelstoke provincial riding speak their mind at the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce All Candidates Forum.

Chamber manager Ruth Hamilton has confirmed that all three candidates, Norm Macdonald (NDP) Doug Clokechok (Liberal) and Earl Olsen (Conservative) have all committed to attend.

“We want to provide an opportunity for the community to become acquainted with each of the candidates running in the upcoming election. It is important to the vitality of the economic climate to hear what each of these parties can offer the citizens of Kicking Horse Country,” said Hamilton.

At the forum, each candidate will be allotted two minutes to make an opening statement. The order of their appearance will be determined in advance by random draw.

Statements will be followed by a question and answer period in which those in attendance are asked to stand, state their name, topic and question only. The event’s chairperson may step in if any person attempts to use the meeting as a platform for expressing a personal point of view on any issue.

Each candidate will have one minute to answer each question.

The Chamber is encouraging as wide a participation as possible, and will therefore be limiting the questions to one per individual.

The candidates will then be given another two minutes for closing statements.

If you do not wish to stand up and publicly ask your question, the candidates will be available for half an hour before, and after the forum, to speak the public directly.

“The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce prides itself as a non-partisan organization with many years experience facilitating All Candidates Forums that are fair and equal to all,” said Hamilton.

The forum will take place at the Senior’s Centre on Thursday May 2. The doors open at 6:30 p.m., the forum itself runs from 7 to 9 p.m., and the doors will remain open 9:30 p.m.
