The Victoria Downtown Residents Association will be hosting two events this month to give local residents the opportunity to hear from candidates running in the upcoming municipal election.

Not Your Average Election Debate, taking place at The Vic Theatre (808 Douglas St.) from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 25, will feature mayoral candidates answering questions on topics related to living downtown. The venue is wheelchair accessible and the debate will also be livestreamed with captioning services available to those attending in-person and online.

Then on Sept. 26, there will be an all-candidates forum at The Atrium (800 Yates St.) from 7 to 9 p.m. This cafe-style event will allow residents to mix and mingle with candidates for Victoria city council. Participants will be invited to rotate through a series of discussion tables, each associated with a specific topic relevant to downtown residents.
