There is an upcoming opportunity to get up close and personal with all the folks running for office in the Provincial election. But the format is much different than in previous elections, allowing for a more vigorous discussion.
Joint All-Candidates’ Meeting for Vancouver-Mount Pleasant and Vancouver-Hastings,
Monday May 1st in Gym D at Britannia from 6:30pm.
The meeting is sponsored by GWAC, Britannia, REACH, VPL, Kettle, and Aboriginal Friendship Centre. Quoting from their release:
All ten candidates running in Vancouver-Mount Pleasant and Vancouver-Hastings have said they are coming.
The format for this event is different from All-Candidates Meetings in previous elections.
6:30-7:00 — Everyone is welcome to enjoy socializing over a free light meal (vegetarian soup or chili, buns, butter, salad, and dessert).
7:00-7:45 — Each candidate will have an opportunity to make a 3-minute prepared statement.
7:45-9:00 — Participants will sit at either Hastings or Mount Pleasant tables while candidates in their riding visit their tables to have informal conversations about the issues that concern them — World Café style.
Should be interesting!
