Candidates from the Skeena riding gathered at the R.E.M. Lee Threatre in Terrace on Tuesday for an all candidates forum.
The forum included a late addition, Merv Ritchie, who’s the leader of the The Land Air Water Party of British Columbia.
Ritchie told the crowd it’s time to stop choosing either NDP or Liberals in every election. He says it’s time to start electing change and told the voters he is their guy.
The LNG debate took up a good chunk of the forum where Liberal candidate Ellis Ross told the audience that it will be coming and it will be done responsibly.
NDP candidate Bruce Bidgood told the crowd the idea of the NDP against LNG and other development projects is false and that they’ll look at the projects more thoroughly to ensure it won’t cause too much of an impact.
Health Care, First Nations issues and the protection of salmon also sparked a number discussions between the candidates.
