Three Delta all-candidate meetings set for federal elections

Meetings are scheduled for Sept. 28 and 30 in North Delta and Oct. 9 in Ladner

Delta residents will get at least three opportunities this fall to hear candidates in the upcoming federal election speak to the issues of the day.

With the federal election less than two months away, the Delta Residents Association is set to host an all-candidates meeting on Saturday, Sept. 28 at North Delta Evangelical Church (11300 84th Ave.). The meeting will take place at 10 a.m., and questions can be submitted by email to delta.residents@gmail.com.

Next, the Delta Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a pair of all-candidate meetings to “address business and community-related issues.”

The first will take place at North Delta Secondary (11447 82nd Ave.) on Monday, Sept. 30 and the second will take place at the Genesis Theatre in Ladner (Delta Secondary School, 5005 45th Ave.) on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Both meetings will be free to attend and will run from 6 to 8:45 p.m.

Members of the public can submit questions for the candidates by emailing them to events@deltachamber.ca. Written questions will also be accepted from the floor at both meetings.

The federal election is set to take place on Monday, Oct. 21. So far five candidates have announced their intentions to run in Delta.

Former Delta school trustee candidate Randy Anderson-Fennell was officially acclaimed as the NDP’s candidate at a nomination meeting on July 31 at the South Delta Recreation Centre.
