Barrhead-Morinville-Westlock voters will have an opportunity to hear the candidates make their pitches and answer questions at an all-candidates forum Apr. 23. Organizers have arranged to have PC candidate Maureen Kubinec, Wildrose candidate Glenn van Dijken and NDP candidate Tristan Turner attend the event.
The forum will take place at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is being put on by the Rotary Club of Morinville, Morinville & District Chamber of Commerce, Sturgeon Teachers (ATA Local No. 27) and the Greater St. Albert Catholic Teachers Local No. 23. The event is also sponsored by the Town of Morinville, Sturgeon County and The Morinville News.
Those wishing to have questions asked at the forum will need to arrive a little early as question submissions will take place between 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Students from Grade 4 and up are encourage to attend as there will be a student vote at the conclusion of the forum to gauge how well the candidates did with youth.
