It’s Election season and that means there is active campaigning going on.
If you know the candidates by sight you can approach them in public situations and ask them questions. But when you do that only you, the candidate and anyone within earshot hears your dialogue. The public forum idea is that all the candidates show up in the same place, at the same time along with anyone from the public who wants to know more about them – or ask them questions.
In previous years I’ve recorded them for later viewing purposes. This year I did that as well but also Live Streamed them to Facebook.
Not everyone is on Facebook. OR the web. So they will also be broadcast on Shaw Cable TV. (I’m not sure how I’d go about getting them onto Telus and if I did I’m not sure which channel they would appear on)
Below you will see the two forums for candidates wanting to be on council. First is the forum for Council candidates and next is the forum for Mayoral candidates.
If you tried watching the live stream of the Mayoral forum you would have heard the audio problems in the first 10 minutes – I apologize for that – we were trying to tap directly into the PA system to get the microphone feed directly to give you ‘better’ sound. That ended up not working out at all. The version you will find below has good sound.
The Candidates for Council.
The Mayoral Candidates Forum
NOTE: The Mayoral Forum did NOT have provision for questions from the floor. This prompted one member of the audience to get very vocal in his objection.
