Come early to allow time to read answers to ‘green’ questions provided by the S.E.N.S. to all candidates in August.

Candidate answers will be available here on the SENS website as soon as they are provided.

One of our questions is on the Blue Dot Pledge (everyone in Canada should have the right to clean air and a safe, healthy environment). In early May SENS asked all 5 candidates to sign a pledge to uphold this right. Thank-you for signing to: Cindy Derkaz (Liberal Party), Harwinder Sandhu (NDP), and Marc Reinarz (Green Party).

This is how the evening will progress:
a. All in attendance may spend time perusing large sheets at the back of the hall that contain questions answered by candidates ahead of time (enlarged for easy reading).
b. A timer allows 2 minutes for each candidate to introduce themselves and answer this question: What will your priorities be for promoting resilience and environmental sustainability in the local area?
c. Candidates have 5 green cards each, to give up for any question from the floor that they choose to answer.
d. A question from the floor may be answered by any candidate. at which time one green card each is relinquished. 
e. Askers will be allowed 30 sec to speak. Answerers will be allowed 1 minute. Bell used as timer.
f. All questions from the floor MUST be related to resilience, sustainability and the environment. No questions on an already mentioned topic are accepted.
g. Each candidate will be allowed a 1 minute closing statement that might include answering a question they did not get a chance to answer earlier.
h. The evening will close not later than 9:30pm
