As it begins to prepare for the General Local Elections this fall, the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) is hoping to hear from residents interested in acting as Election Officials.

“We have had a number of our long-time Election Officials retire or move away and, as a result, we are hoping to recruit a number of new Election Officials in advance of the fall election,” explains RDEK Chief Election Officer Tina Hlushak.

On Thursday October 3rd from 6:30pm, the Fernie Chamber of Commerce will host a local candidate forum ahead of Canada’s next federal election on Monday October 21st. The forum will be held at the Best Western Plus Fernie Mountain Lodge located at 1622 7th Avenue, Fernie. Doors will open at 6pm and the forum will begin at 6:30pm sharp.
