Those interested are asked to book their seats now for an all-candidates meeting to be held at Brentwood College in Mill Bay on Oct. 13.
The daytime meeting will run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Bunch Centre for the Performing Arts, and while admission is free, there are only 100 seats available.
Four of the Cowichan-Malahat-Langford riding’s five candidates will be in attendance: Conservative Martin Barker, the NDP’s Alistair MacGregor, Liberal candidate Luke Krayenhoff and Green Party hopeful Fran Hunt-Jinnouchi.
Marxist-Leninist candidate Alastair Haythornthwaite is not on the list to attend. (Note: Haythornthwaite did express interest in being part of the meeting but to date has not been invited to attend. He says he will be there, nonetheless, even if he is not part of the panel.)
The format for the meeting will include three minutes from each candidate on key issues and portfolios; two targeted questions for each candidate from Brentwood students; a question and answer period with audience participation with some room for redirect and the day will conclude with a summary.
Book your seat at theatre.brentwood.bc.ca. No placards or advertising will be allowed.
If you’re interested in the event, but can’t attend, it will be livestreamed at www.brentwood.bc.ca/live
