Chamber to host four all-candidates meetings
Tri-City voters can hear what their provincial candidates have to say at all-candidates meetings scheduled in each of the region’s four ridings.
Hosted by the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, the meetings will follow a moderated question-and-answer format, according to special events manager Jordan Moe.
Each candidate will have three minutes to make an opening statement, after which the moderator will relay questions from the audience (as opposed to an open microphone format). At the end of the meeting the candidates will be able to address comments made during the opening statements.
The chamber’s policy committee will also have prepared questions to ask the candidates.
The meetings for each riding are as follows:
• Coquitlam-Burke Mountain — April 29, 7 p.m. at the Douglas College David Lam campus, Coquitlam;
• Coquitlam-Maillardville — April 30, 7 p.m. at the Best Western Plus Inn and Convention Centre, Coquitlam;
• Port Moody-Coquitlam — May 7, 7 p.m. at the Port Moody Inlet Theatre;
• Port Coquitlam — May 9, 7 p.m. at the PoCo Inn and Suites Hotel and Conference Centre.
The provincial election takes place on May 14.
