Nelson at its Best is hosting this unique take on citizens/voters connecting with candidates for federal office: Wednesday September 25 7:00pm, Nelson United Church (lower hall)
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” –Stephen R. Covey
With this spirit of generous and curious listening in mind, this public event will provide an opportunity for all of the candidates in the October 21 federal election to listen to and understand the concerns and suggestions from people in Nelson related to key social issues.
This ‘reverse’ forum format is uniquely structured to ensure that whomever is elected will be fully informed of all the key federal/local issues facing our community, such as strengthening health care, poverty and inequality, the climate crisis, First Nations / Truth and Reconciliation, and economic development and technological disruption..
So we invite people in Nelson to come out and express their concerns and ideas to the candidates vying for public office.
