Deadline for Revelstoke debate questions on Thursday

The deadline to submit questions to the Review for Monday's election debate is Thursday, Sept. 17, at 5 p.m.

The Revelstoke all-candidates forum takes place at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre this Monday, Sept. 21.

All five candidates running for election in Kootenay-Columbia have confirmed their attendance at the debate. NDP candidate Wayne Stetski, Liberal Don Johnston, Green candidate Bill Green and Libertarian Christina Yahn, will all make the case why they should take over from Conservative David Wilks, while Wilks will defend his record as MP.

The debate is being organized by a coalition of five local media organizations, including the Revelstoke Review, Revelstoke Current, Revelstoke Mountaineer, EZ Rock and Stoke FM. The media coalition was formed after no other organizations stepped up to host the debate locally.

The media coalition is asking people to submit their questions for the candidates in advance. That way, we can have the opportunity to review the questions, ensure no topics are duplicated, and ensure the most efficient, effective and relevant debate possible. If there is a question you want to ask, please e-mail it to alex.cooper@revelstokereview.com, or to one of the other media outlets of your choice. The deadline to submit questions is Thursday, Sept 17, at 5 p.m.

Former mayor Geoff Battersby will serve as moderator for the debate.

The debate begins at 7 p.m., however we have invited the candidates to arrive early, at 6 p.m., for a chance to meet prospective voters before the forum begins.

Ten other debates are taking place throughout the Kootenay-Columbia riding in advance of the October 19 federal election.
