All candidates’ forum in Prince George

All candidates' forum on Oct. 13 and special ballot voting office.

The Prince George Native Friendship Centre (PGNFC) as a non-partisan, urban Aboriginal organization is hosting an All Candidates’ Forum to support and encourage Aboriginal people to register and vote in the upcoming Federal Election. We feel that hosting this Forum at a venue that is familiar to this target group will encourage Aboriginal people, and others, to come out to meet the candidates and ask questions about issues that are important to them. We warmly invite you to participate.

Date: Oct. 13, 2015

Time: 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Place: Power of Friendship Hall, Prince George Native

Friendship Centre, 1600 – 3rd Avenue

The meeting will be structured in such a way as to provide both candidates and voters an opportunity to express their views, and exchange opinions in a respectful and safe manner.

 

Special ballot voting office

The Prince George Native Friendship Centre is providing a place for people to gather information about the upcoming Federal Election, register to vote and vote by special ballot, which has been available in any Elections Canada office since the drop of the writ. The PGNFC is non-partisan organization and is not advocating for any political party, but is interested in finding ways to boost voter turnout for the Aboriginal population, which is traditionally lower than the average turnout.

Dates: Oct. 5 to Oct. 8, 2015

Time: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Place: Prince George Native Friendship Centre

1600 – 3rd Avenue, Room #223
