Upcoming all-candidates meetings

Civic contenders discuss the issues with the public.

Here are the  all-candidates meetings scheduled so far for Surrey and Delta civic election candidates:

• Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Surrey Public Library, City Centre branch, 10350 University Blvd.

Surrey Housing and Homelessness Task Force hosts an all candidates cafe with a topic of homelessness and housing in Surrey. The audience will be seated at tables of eight to 10 and candidates will circulate between all tables to provide their answers to questions.

All candidates will answer the following question at every table they visit:

“In one minute or less, tell us what you know about the current issues regarding homelessness and affordable housing as it presents specifically in Surrey.”

After that question has been answered, the table facilitator will pose further questions, to be answered by both candidates.
