This forum will take place at the Holiday Inn, 180 Portugal Cove Road on Tuesday September 11th from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. (Salon D)

The forum will be moderated by NTV’s Michael Connors. All three candidates have confirmed. It will be open to the public and will allow voters to hear the positions of all three candidates on key issues facing the district and the province.

This is a great opportunity for union members and our allies to come hear what these candidates and their Parties feel about the issues that are important to the workers of NL.
