They’ll be discussing the themes related to the university’s International Days event and the United Nation’s sustainable goals with a focus on the leadership roll Canada can play.

Beat Klossner and Peter Kerek from the Communist Party, Barb Nederpel and Nancy Bepple from the B.C. NDP and Dan Hines and Donovan Cavers from the B.C. Green Party plan to attend.

B.C. Liberal Party candidates Transportation Minister Todd Stone and Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar have confirmed they won’t be attending due to scheduling conflicts, according to the event’s webpage.
