Now that the fall election is getting closer, debates, forums and events are being scheduled to help voters make their decisions on October 15.

With six mayoral candidates and 20 council candidates, voters have a lot of new faces and names to get to know before general voting day.

Here is a round-up of all the election-related events taking place in the city:

Environmental and sustainability debate

This is an all-candidates debate that will focus on concerns about greenspace, climate change, pollution, environmental leadership, and sustainability standards for development in Prince George. It is sponsored by the UNBC faculty of environment, environmental and sustainability studies and the department of political science.
