All candidates meetings Tuesday, Thursday

  • Nov. 7, 2005 7:00 a.m.

The highlight of the municipal election campaign occurs Thursday (Nov. 10), as Masset, Port Clements and Queen Charlotte host all-candidates meetings, while Sandspit’s meeting is Tuesday evening.
This is perhaps the only chance curious voters will get to see the candidates together, answering questions from the public and discussing local issues.
The Port and Charlotte debates will include school trustee candidates as well as candidates running for village council. In Masset, only council candidates will be up on stage as the trustee has been acclaimed. (A debate in Sandspit took place Tuesday).
There are quite a few candidates running in all three villages so it should be a lively evening. The meetings-organized by the Queen Charlotte District Teachers’ Association-all take place tonight (Thursday), starting at 7 pm in each village’s community hall.
If you can’t make it out to the meeting, or if you’re curious about what happened in another community, check the Observer website. We will have stories about the meetings posted by Friday evening.
The Observer will also be running a special section next week, with statements from all the candidates who submit them. The municipal elections are close¬they take place just over a week from now, on Saturday, Nov. 19.
