Five Kelowna-Lake Country candidates participated in a two-hour forum on environmental issues Thursday at Okanagan College as part of the 100 Debates on the Environment.
Organized by a non-partisan group, similar events were simultaneously held across Canada. Questions dealt mostly with climate change and other environmental issues.
Participants in Kelowna-Lake Country were Travis Ashley (Green), John Barr (People’s party), Stephen Fuhr (Liberal), Justin Kulik (NDP) and independent Daniel Joseph. Conservative Tracy Gray was invited to participate but did not attend.
A similar event, organized by First Things First Okanagan, is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 15, at the Penticton Lakeside Resort and will involve candidates in the South Okanagan-West Kootenay riding.
