See your federal election options from the comfort of home

  • Sep. 25, 2015 12:00 p.m.

Victoria Chamber of Commerce offers three online all candidates meetings for voters in the region.

The three forums will take place from noon to 1 p.m. The pertinent Oak Bay virtual forum is  Thursday, Oct. 1 when the Victoria riding candidates debate.

The forums are open to interested voters via webstream, accessible free-of-charge on the web-enabled platform of their choice. As time permits, there may be additional opportunities for the general public to ask candidates questions by tweeting them to @chambervictoria.

“As the voice of the business community, The Chamber is uniquely positioned to give Greater Victoria’s voters an opportunity to ask federal candidates questions affecting our businesses and region’s economic environment,” said Bruce Carter, Chamber CEO.

“Candidates for the Conservative, Green, Liberal, and New Democrat parties have confirmed their attendance for all three forums, so I expect each will be enlightening, and of use to voters.”

Interested voters can pre-register by Sept. 25 at victoriachamber.ca to be emailed the direct weblink and Twitter event hashtag the day of the event.
