On April 26 in the North Delta Secondary School auditorium, Liberal candidate Scott Hamilton, NDP candidate Ravi Kahlon and Green candidate Jacquie Miller sat down to discuss their platforms in the riding’s second all candidates meeting.

The event, put on by the Delta Chamber of Commerce, covered a variety of topics, including the B.C. teachers settlement, education, exports and taxation.

One question asked about voter apathy, and how the three candidates would attempt to change that in North Delta.

Kahlon spoke first.

He discussed the importance of engaging door to door with constituents.

Miller was next, and she focused on the importance of engaging youth in the democratic process at a young age.

Hamilton spoke last, and brought his personal experience to the answer.

More to come.
