Get your questions ready, an all-candidates meeting has been organized for April 27 at the Miners’ Hall to give Rosslanders an opportunity to meet all the federal MP candidates running in our riding before we cast our votes on May 2.

Co-organized by Lone Sheep Publishing (The Rossland Telegraph) and the Rossland Chamber of Commerce, all four candidates should be present to talk about themselves, their parties, and their platforms.

“They’ve all said they’ll be there,” said Andrew Zwicker of Lone Sheep.

“It’s the first of their campaign promises, we’ll see if they pull that through,” he laughed.

The candidates include NDP incumbent Alex Atamanenko, Conservative Stephen Hill, Liberal Shan Lavell, and the Green Party’s Bryan Hunt.

Zwicker said Lone Sheep decided “we should jump in and take the lead on this one” as their “mission from day one has been to foster democracy.”

The Chamber has been an excellent partner, Zwicker said. “Renee [Clark] has been great to work with, they’re excited about it too.”

Come with your questions, or if you’d prefer not to stand up in a public meeting, you can send in your questions and your name — anonymous questions will not be entertained. Deliver them in person, or email the chamber (commerce@rossland.com), the Telegraph (editor@rosslandtelegraph.com), or the Rossland News (reporter@rosslandnews.com) to have your question asked.
