With local elections taking place on Nov. 15, Douglas College is doing its part to help voters get up to speed on the issues in their communities.

The public is invited to attend an interactive dialogue event with candidates running for election in the Tri-Cities.

The format will involve candidates and attendees gathering in small groups to discuss issues such as transportation, housing, local business and safety.

Douglas College students and the Douglas Students’ Union Engage! Club are helping to organize the event and will be involved in facilitating the group discussions.

At least 18 municipal candidates have agreed to participate in the event. They include mayoral, councillor and school trustee candidates seeking election in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody.
