Local federal all-candidates forums set to take place Oct. 7-8
As we get closer to this fall’s federal election, some local all-candidates forums are being held.
In Lethbridge, the local Chamber of Commerce is hosting a forum next Monday evening (Oct. 7) from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the Yates Theatre.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday (Oct. 8) residents living in Coaldale can hear from those same candidates. That forum, put on by the Coaldale Chamber, will go at 7:00 pm at the Coaldale Community Centre.
There are six people vying to be the next Member of Parliament in the Lethbridge riding including Rachael Harder (Conservative), Amy Bronson (Liberal), Shandi Bleiken (NDP), Stephnie Watson (Green), Grant Hepworth (PPC), and Marc Slingerland (Christian Heritage).
The Lethbridge riding covers the City of Lethbridge, as well as Coaldale, Coalhurst, Picture Butte, and Lethbridge County.
