Political forum to be held at the community centre

On Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. a candidate forum will be held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre.

On Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. a candidate forum will be held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre for the four candidates who are running in the upcoming federal election.

Each candidate will be given three minutes to make his opening remarks and two minutes for his concluding statements.

All candidates will be given two minutes to reply to questions from the audience.

Candidates include Jeff Rock for the Liberals, Progressive Conservative MP Blaine Calkins, Doug Hart from the New Democrat Party and Les Kuzyk, representing the Green Party.

Librarian Jean Keetch is sponsoring the forum and she invites the public to attend.

She said this is the ninth political forum she has hosted and she is hoping for a good crowd.

She notes the forums for federal candidates are often not as well attended.
