Westside-Kelowna forum set

Post by usquebaugh »

It seems I was mistaken that the location for the debate had yet to be announced:

Westside-Kelowna forum set

A forum has been set for Westside-Kelowna provincial candidates.

The debate will take place Wednesday, April 29 from 7-10 p.m. at the Westbank Lions Community Hall. The CBC and Kelowna Capital News are sponsoring the event.

Westside-Kelowna is one of the re-jigged ridings in the election. It includes West Kelowna, as well as downtown Kelowna to Glenmore Road.

Running in the riding are at least four candidates, rookie candidates include Peter Neville, running for the Conservatives, Robin McKim for the BC Green Party and Vinter Ben Stewart for the Liberals.

Veteran candidate Tish Lakes is representing the NDP.

Rick Thorpe, Liberal MLA and former cabinet minister, currently represents the Okanagan-Westside riding and chose not to run again.

Meanwhile Wednesday, BC Liberals announced their platform, making it the last of the political parties to do so.

huh? I'm on a little island and the rest of my riding is in West Kelowna? That seems kind of weird. Who draws these maps?

I think it's called gerrymandering.... Tom DeLay would be so proud. :127:

Vote Green

For example, we will make all freedom of information requests about our government easier and more affordable. That will help journalists and whistleblowers uncover the facts they need to keep our government accountable.
