SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION: All-candidates meetings set for board of education candidates

Victoria Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils will host two meetings before the Nov. 19 election

Candidates hoping for a spot on the Greater Victoria board of education will take questions from voters at two all-candidates meetings.

The Victoria Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils will host two meetings before the Nov. 19 election, where voters can see where the 16 candidates stand on the issues.

Some pre-written questions will be asked and voters can submit others at the meetings. Four randomly selected candidates will answer each question.

The first happens Wednesday (Nov. 9) at Spectrum community school. The second is Tuesday (Nov. 15) at Reynolds secondary school’s theatre.

Both run from 7 to 9 p.m.
