Alberni green candidates meeting planned

An all candidates meeting in Alberni's civic election is being held at Char's Landing on Saturday, Nov. 5.

The Women’s Food and Water Initiative (WFWI), run by Stephen Fisher-Bradley and mayoral candidate Jen Fisher-Bradley, has organized an all candidates meeting at Char’s Landing for Saturday, Nov. 5.

This meeting is designed to give council candidates another opportunity to answer the public’s questions.

The public can meet the candidates from 10–11:30 a.m., then ask questions in a facilitated meeting from 1–3 p.m. Colin Frazer will chair the debate, and Stephen Fisher-Bradley is the timekeeper.

The WFWI is promoting this event to attract voters who are “green, inclusive and for adapting to change,” according to a press release.

The WFWI will ask one question of council candidates. Jen Fisher-Bradley said she and Stephen will come up with the question and run it by the group’s members.

Then questions will be open to the floor.

Mayoral candidates are invited to listen but will not be answering any questions.

For more information, please call Char’s Landing at 778-421-2427. The building is located at Argyle Street and Fifth Avenue, across from city hall.
