The Forum for Millennial Leadership hosted a Nanaimo provincial by-election debate on Monday, January 21st at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, just before the start of advance voting. Featuring candidates Sheila Malcolmson (BC NDP), Tony Harris (BC Liberals) and Michele Ney (BC Greens), the conversational and constructive debate was moderated by Richard Zussman of Global BC. With much hanging in the balance based on the outcome of this by-election, it was standing room only with nearly 200 people in attendance and thousands watching online through Global BC Live Stream. It was a great night of respectful dialogue about the issues and opportunities facing young people in Nanaimo.
