MP Todd Doherty set for series of Town Hall meetings

Cariboo-PG MP travelling through electoral district next week

Residents will be given a chance to have questions, concerns and comments addressed by their Member of Parliament locally next week, as Todd Doherty, MP for Cariboo-Prince George, drops in to a number of communities in his constituency for Town Hall Meetings.

Doherty will be hosting sessions in Quesnel, Williams Lake, Vanderhoof and Prince George over the week, hoping to engage with Cariboo-PG residents in an open-format meeting.

Doherty last hosted Town Hall meetings in June this year, but his communications assistant Joseph Dow says they received feedback that many people were not able to attend the meetings, which took place during daytime working hours.

“We’ve made these in the evening to make them more accessible to those that who have to work during the day. We want to make sure we have the opportunity to hear from as many concerned constituents as possible on the issues that they are facing today,” explains Dow.
