Tonight is the all-candidates’ meeting at Chemainus Secondary School. It’s the main event in our run up to election day on November 15th because this is where the mayors will go head-to-head.
In this last all-candidates’ forum before the election, the 20 candidates for council will say their two-minute speeches, similar to the format at Maple Bay’s ACM.
But that’s where it all changes.
This time the mayors will debate each other, twice. With three mayoral candidates, each offering different views on how to manage North Cowichan’s operations, it will reveal more about their character, leadership and communication styles, and reaction under pressure than any two-minute speech.
It’s not to be missed.
After the debate, councillors will be designated areas around the gym with flipcharts upon which are written answers to yet-to-be-revealed questions.
Come find my stand and we can talk about everything we’ve learned.
