In our Valley, water issues are often in the news. Whether it is extreme rain and tides, boiling our drinking water, or dealing with summer shortages, more and more we find that water is something we need to pay attention to.
This is why several local groups have invited our provincial political candidates to an all-candidates forum focused on water. The public is invited to attend and hear what our potential representatives have to say regarding their plans to address water-related challenges in the Valley and province-wide. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
The Water All-Candidates Forum will take place on May 2nd from 7:00 pm- 9:00 p.m at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College.
Candidates confirmed to attend are Ronna-Rae Leonard from the BC NDP, Ernie Sellentin of the BC Green Party and Leah McCulloch of the BC Conservative Party. With the provincial election happening on May 9th, this will be the last chance to attend an all-candidates forum.
The event will encourage respectful dialogue. The moderator will be Bob Wells, a City of Courtenay Councillor who also serves on the Comox Valley Regional District Water Services Committee and the Drinking Watershed Advisory Group.
If specific questions are not answered during the main event, the candidates will be available subsequently to chat.
