First All-Candidates Meeting will be April 30 in Chemainus

Nanaimo-North Cowichan candidates are getting ready to participate in a series of All-Candidates Meetings in the riding.

We’re less than a month away from the provincial election, and local candidates are busy on the campaign trail.

A series of All-Candidates Meetings have been organized in the Nanaimo-North Cowichan in the leadup to the May 14 election.

The Chemainus and District Chamber of Commerce is partnering with other groups in Chemainus to host an All Candidates Forum Tuesday, April 30 at 7 p.m. at the Seniors Drop-in Centre. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

In Ladysmith, the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring an All-Candidates Meeting Thursday, May 2 from 7-9 p.m. at the Eagles Hall.

Nanaimo-North Cowichan candidates will also participate in an All-Candidates Meeting for three ridings (Parksville-Qualicum, Nanaimo, and Nanaimo-North Cowichan) Wednesday, May 8 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Dover Bay Secondary School in Nanaimo. This meeting is hosted by the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association.

More candidates have recently come out of the woodwork in our riding. Licensed mortgage agent Amanda Jacobsen of Ladysmith has been announced as the Liberal candidate, while Murray McNab, owner of McNab’s Corn Maze in Yellow Point, has announced that he will run as an Independent. Watch next week’s Chronicle for their profiles.

They join Conservative candidate John Sherry, NDP incumbent Doug Routley, and Green Party candidate Mayo McDonough.
