Just in case there are any stragglers out there who may not have noticed the excellent social media campaign our friends at the local CBC affiliate have been managing on Facebook and Twitter, I’d like to remind you that there’s an all-candidates debate this evening at 7 pm at the Gold Rush in Whitehorse.
It’s an open forum, so submit your question early on Twitter or Facebook or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or bring it along with you tonight. The biggest question of all will be, of course, will any questions actually be answered? These are politicians we’re dealing with, after all.
If you can’t make it there in person, the debate will be broadcast on CBC radio and on the web at cbc.ca/north.
Personally, I’m gonna haul my 7-year-old down there to introduce him to the concepts of democracy and debate in Canada. And he tells me he has a question about the abolition of elementary school, so we’ll see if the CBC can fit him in on that topic.
