On Monday November 3rd, 2014 at Cates Hill Chapel, Bowen Island Mayoral candidates responded to questions drawn from submitted public questions. This event focused on the role of the Mayor, and asked the candidates to talk about their leadership and managerial experience, style and vision. This event was hosted by Bowen Island Library, and was filmed by Andrew Stone. You can watch the video here.
Please note that due to a data error in the last segment of the video, the final question ("How will you engage the missing part of our electorate - the teens and twenty somethings on our Island?") and closing remarks from each candidate were lost. Our apologies to the candidates for this unintended omission. The videographer was unable to restore 3.7GB of data from the final segment.
The full list of questions we received before this event is available in pdf here.
