City Council Candidates Meet & Greet at Raycam 11:30 to 1:30

Strathcona residents will have an opportunity to talk to candidates from the various civic parties in the Raycam gym.
Saturday, October 25, 2014

The event will take place Saturday, October 25th from 11:30am - 1:30 pm at the Ray-Cam Community Centre, 920 East Hastings Street.

The all-candidates meeting is a bit different from the norm. Raycam will be opening up the gym and giving each group a table and space to set up as they wish. This format will give residents a chance to actually talk with candidates -- ask questions, share concerns, compare platforms. There will be no speeches.

Also, the issue of BC Housing posting a request for expression of interest to transfer ownership of the Stamps Place social housing complex, which is located next to Ray-Cam, to an as yet to be chosen non-profit, has caused a great deal of controversy in the community. Raycam will also be doing a short briefing on current developments for those in attendance at about 1:00 pm Saturday.
