Providence hosts All-Candidate Forum

OTTERBURNE – November 21, 2013 – Right in the thick of the Provencher by-election campaign, it was the students’ turn for their voices to be heard yesterday at an All-Candidates forum at the Providence University College campus.

The forum drew a large crowd to Providence’s Lecture Theatre, as students and residents in the Provencher riding were eager to hear candidates respond and debate questions asked by the student body of Providence. The nearly hour-long discussion included the topics of immigration, environmental issues, education, youth voting, and federal taxes among other things, and acted as a great opportunity for residents to get clarity on some issues before they make their vote on November 25.

Candidates in attendance included Liberal party candidate Terry Hayward, Green party candidate Janine Gibson, and NDP candidate Natalie Courcelles Beaudry.

If you missed the forum, you can catch it on the radio, as will be aired on AM 1250 at 2:05 PM on Thursday November 21st.

Steinbach Online also produced a short news story highlighting the forum, which you can see below.
