Submitted by Diane Janzen Liberal Campaign
Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon students quiz candidates with moderator Rob Bogunovic.
ver 1,000 students at Chilliwack Senior Secondary attended what was supposed to be an “all-candidates” meeting (Wednesday), but the Conservative candidate in this Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding again did not show up.
Mr. Rob Bogunovic, the moderator introduced (from left to right in photo) the Liberal candidate Diane Janzen, the Green Candidate Jamie Hoskins, and the NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony. Mr. Strahl was absent.
Questions of concern students asked the candidates:
Rachel Vandenberg asked about the candidates views on lowering the voting age to 16.
Alex Scott asked what sort of proposals to expect to make post-secondary education more affordable.
Chelsea Lewicki asked about work opportunities for unemployed youth.
Madison Klettke asked about the sentencing of youth offenders.
Other questions were related to military involvement in foreign wars, healthcare reforms, deficit reduction, social programs, and economic growth.
