On Oct. 15, First Things First Okanagan wants to focus on an important topic this election season: the environment.
All of the candidates of the South Okanagan-West Kootenay riding have been invited to take part in a debate at the Penticton Lakeside Resort.
Ahead of the 7 p.m. debate, there will be a round table discussion with the candidates where locals are free to ask their environmentally-focused questions. The round table section of the night starts at 6:15 p.m. and is scheduled to run until 6:45.
Four questions have been announced to be asked during the main debate; one on how to have Canada transition to a low carbon emission economy, how the government should protect our waters, how to protect and restore Canada’s biodiversity and how Canadians and Canadian species can be protected from the effects of hazardous substances.
Admission to the debate and round table discussion is by donation.
