Alberni school class adds open mike to all candidates meeting Nov. 2

The ADSS Civic Studies class has added a more public component to its all candidates meeting Nov. 2.

The Civic Studies 11 class at Alberni District Secondary School is opening its Nov. 2 all candidates meeting for public input.

The all candidates meeting will start at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at the ADSS Auditorium and has been extended to 11:30 a.m. There will be an open mike for members of the public wishing to address the council candidates.

A 10-minute intermission will allow for a class change midway through the morning.

“Potential council members are not being given a public opportunity to speak, other than at the Civic Studies class’s all candidates meeting,” Civic Studies teacher Anne Ostwald said. The meeting has been extended to give the public that voice.

Ostwald reminds the public that this is a student-run class project.

The Port Alberni District Labour Council will hold a candidates’ meet and greet at the Steelworkers Hall on Montrose Street on Tuesday, Nov. 8 from 7–9 p.m. Each candidate will be given two minutes to address the public, then will have table space allotted to them so they can have one-on-one conversations with people.

A mayors-only all candidates meeting was held Oct. 27 at the Capitol Theatre. Although the meeting wasn’t televised, Port Alberni resident Chris Alemany tweeted throughout the event and has also posted videos on YouTube at the following link:
