Skeena all candidates meeting set for provincial election

The event is happening April 30 at Terrace Pentecostal Assembly

LOCAL RESIDENTS have the chance April 30 to hear and question the candidates seeking to represent the Skeena riding in the May 14 provincial election.

That’s when an all candidates meeting is being held at the Terrace Pentecostal Assembly beginning at 7 pm.

To date three candidates have declared – incumbent New Democrat Robin Austin, BC Liberal Carol Leclerc and BC Conservative Mike Brousseau.

Candidates will make opening and closing statements and, in between, take questions from a media panel and from the audience.

They’ll also be able to rebut answers given by other candidates.

The meeting is being sponsored by The Terrace Standard through the cooperation and assistance of the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce, Terrace Toastmasters, the BC Northern Real Estate Board, the Skeena Valley Rotary Club, Astral Media and CFNR.

Moderating the evening is Northwest Community College vice president Beverly Moore-Garcia.

The Terrace Pentecostal Assembly is located at 3511 Eby St.
