Pulse Pictou County

All Candidates Forum








For Immediate Release

Canada Votes 2015
All Candidates Forum – Central Nova

STELLARTON, Nova Scotia – September 14, 2015 – Pulse Pictou County will be hosting an “All Candidates Forum” on Wednesday September 30th, 2015 from 6:30PM at the Nova Scotia Community College (“NSCC”) – Pictou Campus.

“A large percentage of our young adult population are not politically involved and simply do not vote” says Pulse executive member Ashlie Cormier, a health care professional living and working in Pictou County, Nova Scotia. “Pulse will be putting an emphasis in promotion of the event to young voters in particular, with the goal of encouraging young people to become more informed and actively engaged in shaping the future of our community and country.”

Despite the youth-focused target audience, the forum will cover general election issues that are important to all members of Central Nova. Pulse, in collaboration with the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce and our host, NSCC – Pictou Campus, are therefore encouraging all Central Nova constituents to join in this unique opportunity to hear directly from those running in the 2015 Federal Election.

There is open call to the public to submit questions for the candidates. The floor will not be open during the event, so constituents are encouraged to please forward any questions for the candidates to pulsepictoucounty@gmail.com or via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/pulsepictoucounty. Questions can also be sent to the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce at info@pictouchamber.com.

Pulse would like to thank all their collaborators and sponsors, especially the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce and NSCC – Pictou Campus in helping to create this opportunity for voters in Central Nova to engage in the democratic process.

Pulse Pictou County is a grass-roots, volunteer-run, initiative to establish a cohesive community of young working people in our county. The purpose of Pulse is to attract and retain a growing population of young working people in Pictou County, by making the area a more engaging place for young people to live and contribute.
