About 55 residents and 10 media came out to hear four of the five candidates running in the federal election hoping to earn their vote Oct. 19. The event, organized by the Morinville & District Chamber of Commerce offered candidates an opportunity for opening and closing remarks as well as the chance to answer about a half dozen pre-submitted questions on a variety of topics, including the economy, the environment, and immigration and citizenship.

Sturgeon River-Parkland candidates Rona Ambrose (CPC), Brendon Greene (Green), Guy Desforges (NDP) and Ernest Chauvet (Christian Heritage Party) were present at the event. Liberal candidate Travis Dueck did not attend the event but was invited by the chamber.

Below are videos of the four candidate’s opening speeches as well as their responses to some of the questions asked at the event.
