Tuesday Night’s All Candidates Meeting Format & Details


This is for all candidates running for council positions.


Hosted by eight local non-profit groups, the focus of this meeting is: Arts & Culture, the Environment and Social Services.

Time: 7:00 PM

Matsqui Centennial Auditorium

You will be asked to be seated in alphabetical order at tables (with your name on a tent placement card) on the stage.

Moderator: Justin Goodrich


ü  Due to the sheer volume of candidates, the moderator will introduce the candidates at the beginning of the meeting.

ü  You will receive 1 yes/no question from each of the 3 sectors (arts & culture, environment, social services).

ü  Then the moderator will ask 2 (possibly 3) questions from the 3 sectors to all candidates with time for a one minute response.

ü  Then we will move to questions from the floor. Floor questions can only be asked of one candidate with time for a 1 minute response. So, if you want something about your platform to get out, make sure you have someone ready to ask you a specific question.

ü  The moderator will wrap up the meeting for a finish time of 9:30 PM.
