The Cloverdale Chamber is set to host an all-candidates meeting Oct. 13.

The virtual chinwag for the Surrey-Cloverdale riding will be done via Zoom beginning at 4:30 p.m.

“To get your link, you need to go to the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce website,” said Scott Wheatley, executive director for the Chamber. “Once there, you can register.”

Wheatley said all five candidates—Aisha Rehana Bali (Conservative), Marvin Hunt (BC Liberal Party), Rebecca Smith (BC Green Party), Mike Starchuk (BC NDP), and Marcella Williams (Independent)—will all be participating in the meeting.

Wheatley explained that if anyone wants to ask the election hopefuls questions, they must email them in in advance.

“The meeting is not an open debate,” added Wheatley. “This meeting is a chance to get to know the parties and ask any questions that people may have.”

Wheatley said about 20 people have already pre-registered for the Zoom meeting and he’s hoping he gets about another 30 or so to sign up.
