Candidates discuss migrant workers, refugees, immigration at Central Okanagan forum
Candidates from both Central Okanagan ridings met at the Kelowna Downtown Library on Saturday (Sept. 22) to discuss immigration, refugees and migrant workers with their potential constituents.
Nine of the 12 candidates from both Kelowna-Lake Country and Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola showed up to the forum, which was sponsored by Amnesty International: Kelowna, KAIROS (BC-Yukon) and Citizens for Public Justice.
The format of the forum saw each party given 10 minutes to tackle all three issues followed by a session of audience-submitted questions.
