There are three major events scheduled for candidates this week as the BC municipal elections hit the home stretch.
  • The first is a forum and mock election to be held at Osoyoos Secondary School Tuesday morning for municipal candidates. Students will be listening to local candidates deliver their platforms then retiring to vote on who they will elect.
  • Tuesday evening, the three candidates for two Osoyoos seats on the Okanagan Similkameen School District board of trustees will gather for a meet and greet at the Sonora Centre. The casual event is hosted by OsoyoosToday. It goes from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Boston Pizza in downtown Osoyoos will host the election equivalent of “speed dating,” allowing voters to sit down and chat for a couple of minutes with each of the candidates. That event is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m.
We asked all the candidates — Council and School Trustee — where else their campaigning would take them this week. Here are their responses. (Note: edited to fit our format.)
