The first Chilliwack all-candidates meeting of the 2020 provincial election will be a virtual affair.
The All-Candidates Debate will be livestreamed on Wednesday, Oct. 14 starting at 6 p.m., co-hosted by the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce and Chilliwack Healthier Community network.
The prospect of grilling candidates with questions during a pandemic has clearly changed things on a practical level for organizers.
Participants will be able to submit online questions for candidates running in Chilliwack, or Chilliwack-Kent riding, by logging on to slido.com, a Q&A and polling platform for virtual events. The Slido event code will be released closer to the event date.
Stay tuned to www.theprogress.com. ‘B.C. Politics’ section for everything election-related to BC Votes 2020.
* Please note that the event organizers changed the date since this story first went online, from Oct. 13, to Oct. 14, 2020.
