MUNICIPAL ELECTION: Meet and greet Victoria council hopefuls

Community groups hosting trade-fair style event to meet candidates

With 20 candidates for council and four for mayor in Victoria, the notion of holding a panel discussion is a logistical nightmare.

To deal with the numbers, community groups have all come to the same conclusion. In the coming weeks, three community groups will hold a trade-fair style event where candidates have booths and voters can ask questions.

They are as follows:

• Nov. 8: Victoria West Community Centre (521 Craigflower Rd.), 6:30 to 9 p.m.

• Nov.14: Burnside Community Centre (313 Jutland Rd.), 7 to 9 p.m.

• Nov. 15: Oaklands Community Centre (#1-2827 Belmont Ave.), 7 to 9 p.m.

 

On Monday (Nov. 7), mayoral candidates square off at the Little Fernwood Hall, (1923 Fernwood Rd.), 7 p.m. Panel discussion moderated by Neil Williams.
