SABVC hosts ward 10 forum as Calgary heads out to vote Monday
The Students' Association of Bow Valley College [SABVC] was joined by municipal election candidates for Calgary's ward 10 on Tuesday to discuss topics pertaining to residents, stakeholders, and Bow Valley College students.
The live virtual forum lasted 90 minutes and was attended by both students and campus community partners from ward 10.
Candidates Andre Chabot, Abed Harb, Esther Sutherland, Tony Dinh, Jesse Minhas, and Mushtaq Kayani were each given the chance to explain to students why they're running for city council, and answer questions specific to the ward which spans 12 of Calgary's northeast communities.
Austin Deck, who represents SABVC as the association's Director of External Affairs, served as moderator of the forum and directed questions to candidates on topics including Indigenous reconciliation, property taxes, sustainability, public transportation, crime, students supports, and more.
"The Ward 10 Forum held by SABVC on October 12th was an amazing experience," said Deck. "Being able to provide space for the conversations between those whom are running to make our communities better and the constituents they will serve is a great reminder of the importance of all of us being engaged in our communities."
