Chamber announces debates in Harrison and Agassiz

Village of Harrison Hot Springs: Municipal candidates will answer questions chosen from Chamber members and general public

With a municipal election just around the corner, the Harrison Agassiz Chamber of Commerce is planning two All Candidates Debates.

The first debate will be held in Harrison Hot Springs, at Memorial Hall on Oct. 28, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The second will focus on Agassiz (District of Kent) candidates, and will be held in the Agassiz Agricultural Hall on Nov. 4, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Anyone wishing to ask questions of the candidates can email their suggested questions the Chamber at info@harrison.ca by Oct. 24.

Alternatively, questions can be mailed to PO Box 429 Harrison Hot Springs, B.C. VOM 1K0.

Not all of the questions received will necessarily be used in the debate, and no questions will be accepted on the evenings of the debates.

Nomination packages are now available at municipal offices. No candidates have officially declared their intention to run, in either municipality, to the Observer at this time. The nomination period begins on Sept. 30 and ends on Oct. 10.

Voting day across B.C. is on November 15, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with advance voting opportunities. Elected municipal officials will serve a four year term.
