The provincial election campaign hasn't officially started, but voters in the Parksville Qualicum Beach constituency get an opportunity this week to listen to those who want to be their MLA.
The Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with The NEWS, is presenting an all-candidates debate Thursday night (April 4) at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.
The attendance of all three declared candidates has been confirmed — Barry Avis of the NDP, David Coupland of the Conservatives and Michelle Stilwell of the Liberals.
The debate starts at 7 p.m. and will be moderated by Rev. Phil Spencer of St. Stephen's United Church.
