Tackling the issues
All-candidates forum, Yellowknifer quiz for byelection candidates
NNSL (Sep 24/99) - "Speak that we may see thee," says the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce.
As is its custom, the chamber is doing its part to reveal contenders for municipal office. Municipal affairs committee chairman, John Williston, will be moderating a forum for contenders for the two vacant council seats at City Hall council chambers Oct. 4.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and opening statements by candidates start at 7:30. Following questioning by chamber representatives, candidates will field questions from the public.
The forum will be taped by Community Access TV for broadcast Oct. 6 at 7 p.m.
While the chamber is offering candidates a chance to speak their piece, Yellowknifer is asking for it in writing.
Following is a list of questions touching on the main issues the city is facing today.
Candidates are asked to respond to the following questions no later than Oct. 8. Responses to each question longer than 30 words will be pared down by the editors.
Answers will be published in a future edition.
Answers can be returned in person to the office of the Yellowknifer, e-mailed to email@example.com or faxed (873-8507).
