The session aims to cover general election issues that are important to all members of the community and all constituents are encouraged to attend.

The session for Pictou Centre will be held on Tuesday at Summer Street Industries.  For Pictou West, it will take place at Fat Tony’s Bar and Grill on Wednesday, while the Pictou East session will take place on Thursday at the Whitetail Pub & Grill. Each candidate will have the opportunity to address the crowd and highlight their platform. There will be a short period of formal questions, followed by a casual reception where attendees can speak to the candidates and may pose their own questions or concerns. The floor will not be open to questions during the formal portion of the event.
