Sooke Byelection Candidates’ Speed Date
Sunday, Sept. 15, 2 to 6 p.m. at the Sooke Community Hall, 2037 Sheilds Rd., Sooke
Come and meet your candidates for Sooke’s Municipal Byelection. Following last fall’s all-candidates speed date prior to the general election, we’ve invited the ten candidates in this month’s by-election to meet, greet and answer questions from the electorate.
This is your opportunity to meet the candidates directly and find out their position on the issues that matter the most to you. You will have limited time to talk with each candidate, so come prepared with your question.
Bernie Klassen, from Transition Sooke, explains: “In a general candidate’s debate or forum, there’s always the chance that a candidate will be harangued or lectured at. This format allows people to approach the candidates in a focused manner with prepared questions.”
Voting day is Sat., Sept. 28 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Edward Milne Community School. Advance polling is on the two Wednesdays (Sept. 18 and 25) at the Municipal Hall.
