Questions for Candidates in the 2018 Municipal Election
In May and in September, Comox Valley Council of Canadians, Comox Valley Global Awareness Network and Imagine Comox Valley hosted two Sustainability Forums; forums whose goal it was to bring attention to key issues relevant in the upcoming election.
Click candidate questions to find questions provided by speakers from both Forums which you might ask candidates running for election in your municipality. For a detailed outline of issues from the first Forum, please review the powerpoints here.
On October 20, voters in the Comox Valley will be electing mayors, councillors, school district board members and electoral area directors.
Local government, be it in a village, town, city or electoral area, shapes the community it serves with its decision making.

The CV Global Awareness Network, CV Council of Canadians and Imagine Comox Valley invite the public, members of local government and candidates standing for office in the October municipal elections to learn more about the possibilities of reaching sustainable solutions to current issues and problems being faced in the Comox Valley in their second Sustainability Forum on Wednesday Sept. 19th at 7 PM.Continue reading →
With municipal elections coming in October this October, the first Comox Valley Sustainability Forum was designed to inform voters – and prospective candidates – about the creative work being spearheaded by local non-profits to find solutions to a variety of inter-related problems we face as a society, and to offer options for creating a more sustainable community.
All issues covered in the first Forum fall within the mandate of our local municipal councils – be it the Village of Cumberland, the Town of Comox, the city of Courtenay or the three electoral areas.
Click on the links below to access the presentations that were given at the first Sustainability Forum. As a voter, you can use this information to ask pointed questions of local municipal candidates running for office this October.
