Candidates to Debate Agricultural Issues in Hixon
Hixon, B.C. – An all-candidates forum focusing on agriculture and rural living will take place in Hixon tonight.
“It is time that the agriculture industry is recognized as an issue that should be addressed during the election, because no matter whether they be Municipal, Provincial or Federal they all have to eat,” says moderator Brock McElroy.
“If you are a farmer or rancher or just a rural resident this meeting will give you the opportunity to ask questions on the way food is processed after leaving the farm and made available to the consumer.”
The forum, which will include the candidates in the Cariboo-Prince George riding, will take place at the Hixon Community Hall and run from 7:00-9:00pm.
