Candidates for Kamloops-North Thompson Riding coming to Barriere

Opportunity for voters to meet candidates one-on-one and hear what they have to say

Voters in the Barriere area will have a number of opportunities to meet candidates for the Kamloops-North Thompson riding over the next few weeks.

This Friday, Apr.19, BC NDP candidate Kathy Kendall will be in the community knocking or doors, meeting with area voters, and discussing her election platform, and listening to voters concerns.  If you would like to meet with her call Mel at 250-6721843 for information on where she will be available while here.

On Wednesday, Apr. 24, BC Liberal incumbent Terry Lake will be available at a meet-and-greet in the Barriere Legion basement, from two to 4 p.m.  This is your opportunity to ask questions about the election platform, and discuss your concerns or goals for the community.

Meet all of the candidates at an All Candidates Forum, hosted by the Star/Journal, on Friday, May 3,7 p.m., at the North Thompson Fall Fair Hall, 677 Barriere Lakes Road, in Barriere.  Mediator for the evening will be Harley Wright.  Each candidate will be given an opportunity for opening and closing remarks. The public will be able to ask questions from the floor, and each candidate will be given an opportunity to answer each question.  There will be time after the forum ends for attendees to personally meet the candidates.

To date we do not have information available regarding other candidates itineraries to visit Barriere before the May election date.
