On Tuesday evening at GFSS The Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce held an All Candidates Forum for the upcoming by-election of May 28th.
With the exception of Mr. O’Doherty, who was absent due to a death in the family, all the other 6 candidates appeared. Mr. Michael Strukoff was host for the evening with Kathy Wright, of BCRCC, officiating as timekeeper.
Between 60 and 70 people were in the audience (just my guesstimate). It appeared most of city council was there with two of them getting up to ask questions.
As with previous forums each candidate gave opening remarks followed by a question period and then each candidate gave their closing remarks. Order was by random draw. The media got to ask questions before and after questions from the floor.
