Using a unique ‘speed dating’ concept, the Nipawin and District Chamber of Commerce gave interested voters a chance to talk with federal election candidates for the Prince Albert riding.
The forum, held Wednesday, October 16 at the Evergreen Centre, was different from many forums in that each candidate spent 10 minutes at a table of voters before moving to the next one.
“It turned out really well,” said Chamber Manager Lisa Suchlandt.
The candidates themselves also commented on liking the format.
About 33 members of the public were on hand in the Jackpine Room of the Evergreen, with five of the six candidates for the riding available.
Kerri Wall of the Green Party was not there. Kelly Day, People’s Party of Canada, Estelle Hjertaas,Liberal Party of Canada, Randy Hoback (incumbent), Conservative Party of Canada, Harmony Johnson-Harder, New Democratic Party and Brian Littlepine, Veteran’s Coalition Party all attended.
Each candidate was given two minutes for a brief introduction and speech before sitting a table full of voters.
