On October 20th Whistler will head to the polls and vote in a new Mayor and Council. As Whistlerites seek to find out where candidates stand on local issues non-profits are again stepping up to create spaces for dialogue.
On Wednesday September 26th, the Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment (AWARE), Arts Whistler and Whistler Community Services will host an All Candidates Meeting focused on ‘Building Sustainable Community’.
At the meeting, candidates will be given time to present to community members on the issues they care about and to answer questions from the audience which can be expected to be on topics relating to the environment, climate change, arts and culture, growth, community and issues the audience is concerned about as we collectively seek to build a shared sustainable future.
The All Candidates Meeting is free to attend so come early to be sure to secure a seat.
