Boundary residents will get a chance to grill the candidates on issues important to the area. The Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a couple of all-candidate forums for the candidates for Member of Parliament for the new South Okanagan-West Kootenay (SOWK) riding.
“It’ll be a great way for the residents be more informed about the candidates,” said Kathy Wright, executive director for the chamber.
The forums will be in Grand Forks at the high school on Oct. 7 and in Midway at the community centre on Oct. 8. Michael Strukoff will moderate both forums.
“As far as I know, all the candidates are coming,” said Wright. “I’ve already contacted them and will be following up on Friday.”
The candidates are: Marshall Neufeld, Conservation; Richard Cannings, NDP; Connie Denesiuk, Liberal; Samantha Troy; Green; and Brian Gray, independent.
