Venue now full for Thursday night mayoral meeting

If there are seats left non-registered guests will be seated on a first come, first served basis

There are no more seats available tonight to watch the mayoral hopefuls in person, but you can still watch the proceedings from home.

Registration is completely full for Thursday night’s mayoral debate at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre in the Hub International Theatre, organizers with the Chilliwack Chamber and the Downtown Chilliwack BIA announced.

More than 500 people expressed interest in the Oct. 11 all-candidates forum, by logging on to the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce website and registering to save themselves a seat.

Registration was mandatory, so those attendees who show up with their confirmation email printed out will be given preferred entrance. There will be a registration table for those without access to a printer.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

“If there are seats available then non-registered guests will be seated on a first come, first served basis,” according to Chamber officials.

Chilliwack voters who did not register can watch the all-candidates meeting live as it happens, or after the fact at ChillTV.ca.

Attendees can like mayoral questions that will be appearing online at www.slido.com and they can watch them rise and fall in the queue. Enter the code #Mayor4Chwk to view and post questions.
