Election debates scheduled in October

A group of Abbotsford non-profit organizations will host a council townhall and a mayoral debate on Tuesday, Oct. 21 and Thursday, Oct. 23, before the upcoming civic election on Nov. 15.

Organized by Abbotsford Community Services, the United Way of the Fraser Valley, the Abbotsford Community Foundation, the Abbotsford Arts Council, and the Fraser Valley Conservancy, the event will focus on three key areas – arts and culture, the environment, and social services.

The townhall evening will follow a similar format to a public hearing, with people queuing to ask questions.

At the mayoral debate, questions will be prepared by the organizing committee.

Both events will be held at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium (32315 South Fraser Way) with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and proceedings beginning at 7 p.m. Both sessions will end at approximately 9:30 p.m.
