To discuss important matters

By Erin Knight
With Wednesday’s election on everyone’s minds, a Municipal Candidates Forum was held at the Gilbert Plains Community Hall on the evening of Monday, October 20. The event began at 7:00 PM to a full audience of interested voters. The large panel of potential councillors, 16 of whom were in attendance, were given opening and closing statements as well as an extensive question period. The forum was sponsored by Gilbert Plains Economic Development and moderated by Mr. Jean-Louis Guillas of Dauphin.
The candidates began the forum with short introductions, intended to familiarize voters and attendees with their running platform. Names were called in random order to provide their opening statements. Questions from the public had been accepted prior to the forum and were screened by a group of volunteers
