KELOWNA - There is a forum scheduling conflict for the candidates running for the job of MLA in Kelowna-Lake Country ahead of provincial election day.

Both forums are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, April 27.

The Lake Country Chamber's forum will be held at the Creekside Theatre, while the Community Action forum will be at the Hollywood Road Education Services building.
