Lake Country voters have a chance to pose questions to would-be politicians in the coming week at a pair of candidates forums in Winfield and Oyama.

The Oyama Community Club will host the first event on November 3 at the Oyama Community Hall from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Candidates in the mayoral, Oyama ward and at-large councilor races have all been invited to participate.

Candidates will be given the opportunity to make opening statements and then comment on their vision for Oyama and discuss their five-year plan for Lake Country.

The floor will then be opened to questions from voters. The Oyama Community Club asks that questions be structured in a way that they can be addressed by as many candidates as possible.

Candidates have been asked to keep their answers to a two minute maximum to ensure that the forum proceeds smoothly.

On November 7 at the Creekside theatre the Chamber of Commerce hosts an all-candidates forum starting at 7:00 p.m.

All 18 mayoral and council candidates have been invited to speak.

Anyone with a question for a particular candidate or for all candidates needs to write it down and submit it to the Chamber of Commerce for consideration. Questions can be faxed to 250-766-0170, emailed to or dropped off at 40-9522 Main St before 4:00 p.m. on November 7. Questions can also be submitted via the Chambers website at
