The Chambers of Commerce in Kelowna and Lake Country have joined forces to host a virtual all-candidates forum for those running in the Kelowna-Lake Country riding.

It’s scheduled to run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 14.

There won’t be any opportunity for viewers to ask questions but they can send questions to the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce in advance.

There are five candidates running for office in the riding that’s held by Conservative Tracy Gray, who is running for re-election.

She’s being challenged by Liberal Tim Krupa, the NDP’s Cade Desjarlais, Imre Szeman of the Green Party and Brian Rogers with the People’s Party of Canada.

Gray won the 2019 election with 45.6 per cent of the vote, defeating Liberal Stephen Fuhr.

“This year, we're focusing on the Canadian Chamber's 'What it takes to Grow - Priorities for the next Parliament,' as well as diving into the critical issues that impact our growing region including affordable housing, inter-provincial trade, infrastructure investments, global competitiveness and responding to labour market demands,” the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce website says.

While it’s an event sponsored by the chambers of commerce, questions can be sent in by the public.

The forum is open to everyone to view but they must register in advance. They will be emailed an access code prior to the forum.

Registration and a form for asking questions are available here.
