CALENDAR: All-candidates meetings

Debates scheduled for Gordon Head, Royal Oak, Cadboro Bay, Quadra neighbourhoods

  • Oct. 23, 2014 6:00 p.m.

All-candidates meetings are now in full swing throughout Saanich.

The first meeting took place last night at the Prospect Lake and District Hall, and Gordon Head United Church (4201 Tyndall Ave.) hosts candidates tonight at 7 p.m.

Next week, an all-candidates debate will be held Wednesday (Oct. 29) at Royal Oak middle school in the multi purpose room. Doors open at 6:15 pm, for an informal meet and greet with candidates before a 7 p.m. discussion.

“We have a handful of new candidates, a few large and looming regional issues, and the mix of local concerns,” said Paul Whitworth, vice president of the Royal Oak Community Association. “It should be lively watching the candidates engage voters and answer questions.”

Incumbents and seven other candidates will answer questions that have been written down and submitted by the audience. Royal Oak middle school is located at 751 Travino Ln.

More all-candidates meetings:

  • Oct. 30: Lochside elementary, 1145 Royal Oak Dr. 7 p.m.
