The South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) is hosting a municipal all-candidates forum in the Valley Room on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m.
Voters are encouraged to show up to ask, and hear answers to, the tough questions that matter to the municipality before the upcoming District of 100 Mile House elections.
Meanwhile, the SCCC “wants to know what you want to know” about these candidates’ stances on important local issues.
Folks may send in their questions before the forum to “Municipal Elections”, Box 2312, 100 Mile House, B.C. V0K 2E0 or e-mail to email@example.com.
Candidates running for the mayor’s chair or one of the four councillor positions will answer questions from the floor, as well as a selection from the questions that have come in from the public prior to the forum.
