Kamloops climate debate set

All seven candidates in the Kamloops Thompson Cariboo riding are planning to participate in the Oct. 3 debate on the environment.

Transition Kamloops and the Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association invite the public to the pre-election debate focussing on environmental issues of national and local interest, the groups said in a release. 

The two groups, along with students and concerned local citizens, offer this non-partisan event to give voters in the riding a chance to hear the federal candidates speak on this important topic.

The debate will run from 7 to 9 p.m. at TRU in the House of Learning, Rm. 190. ?Parking on the TRU Campus is free in the evenings

The Kamloops Debate on Environment is one of the 100 Debates campaign taking place across Canada on Oct. 3.  

The goal is to create a nationwide conversation about the environment, giving voters an opportunity to learn about what is shaping up to be one of the top issues of this federal election, the release said.  

Each candidate will provide an opening statement and will respond to questions on local and national environmental issues that have been made available to the candidates prior to the debate.   

The public will be able to submit written questions in the early part of the event. These will be grouped, triaged and presented at the discretion of the moderator, the release stated. There will not be open mic questions.

The public may contact [email protected] or [email protected] for more information.
