DIGBY, N.S. —

The Digby and Area Board of Trade is hosting an all-candidates meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

The meeting is open to the public.

The West Nova candidates who will be attending are:

• Chris d'Entremont - PC

• Jason Deveau - Liberal

• Matthew Dubois - NDP

• Judy Green - Green Party

The evening will start out with introductions by each candidate.

The Board of Trade has itself prepared three questions that were supplied to the candidates in advance of the meeting to be answered at the meeting. Each candidate will be given two minutes to answer those questions.

From there things will shift to the public who can ask questions from the floor.

The evening is not a debate amongst candidates, but rather an opportunity for the public to get a snapshot on where they candidates and their parties stand on issues.

The 7 p.m. meeting will be held upstairs at the Digby Fire Hall, First Avenue, in Digby.

NOTE: Chad Hudson, the candidate for the People's Party had originally been one of the candidates who would be attending the meeting but Hudson announced on Sept. 30 he was withdrawing as the candidate for the party. Read that story here.
