Vancouver City Council Candidates’ Debate
In anticipation of the November 19 municipal election, the Residents Association Mount Pleasant (RAMP) will be hosting a candidates’ debate on citywide planning issues, and community groups from around Vancouver will be attending to ask their questions and communicate their issues to all. Village Vancouver will have a central role to play in this debate on building community.
Representatives from all elected parties--Vision Vancouver, the Non Partisan Association, the Coalition of Progressive Electors and the Green Party--have confirmed their attendance.
Residents from neighbourhoods across Vancouver are invited to attend. Debate questions will be selected in advance from online solicitations at www.rampvancouver.com, and there will be opportunity for additional questions from the floor.
A coffee hour will follow the debate to allow attendees to speak directly with the candidates.
