As election day approaches, Burmaby residents will get a chance to hear candidates discuss numerous pressing issues throughout the city at a local town hall.
The Society to End Homelessness in Burnaby has announced a town hall will be held Sept. 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in person at Southside Community Church (7135 Walker Ave.) with a limited audience due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Those wishing to watch will also be able to do so via Zoom.
Candidates attending will be able to answer a specific set of questions, followed by a moderated question and answer period for both those attending in-person and online.
Specific topics that will be discussed are homelessness, affordable housing and food security.
Candidates participating are:
- Conservative Party of Canada - Likky Lavji
- Green Party of Canada - Marueen Curran
- Liberal Party of Canada - Terry Beech
- New Democratic Party of Canada - Peter Julian
- People's Party of Canada - Marcella Williams
"We hope that this opportunity will give the candidates the opportunity to express their position on such important issues, and give the voters/citizens the opportunity to hear where each person/party stands," the society said on its website.
RSVP details are expected to be released shortly.
