Skeena candidates gather in Kitimat to listen to constituents

In an unique forum, Skeena riding candidates gathered in Kitimat last night to listen to constituents.

The forum discussed the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on economic growth, reducing inequality, and building sustainable communities.

In a twist, the candidates took part in small group discussions, speaking with residents instead of speaking at them.

Liberal candidate Ellis Ross says the format allowed him to take away a number of lessons.

NDP candidate Bruce Bidgood says he heard Kitimat residents want to balance a strong economy with a healthy environment.

The organizer of these forums says their goal is to spark a conversation between the candidates and attendees.

Another forum is being held in Williams Lake.

The provincial election campaign begins next Tuesday with voters heading to the polls on May 9th.
