TRU Students to Host Political Forum

(Kamloops) Thompson Rivers University social work and human services students are holding an online all-candidates forum to find out where the candidates in the upcoming BC election stand on social issues.

“We are preparing for careers in social work and human services because we care about people and our community, and we believe government has an important role to play in ensuring the well-being of all” says third-year social work student Megan Dalgleish. “This forum will help to inform students and other voters about important and pressing social issues the successful candidates will have to address.”

Dalgleish and Rachel Knuttila, another third-year social work student, are working with the Thompson Nicola Branch of the BC Association of Social Workers to host the online forum set for 3pm, Tuesday, October 6th.

“One only needs to look around Kamloops to know that mental health, substance use, homelessness, and poverty are significant issues and that there are insufficient resources available to meet the demand” says Knuttila. “We want to know what the candidates will do about these and other social issues if elected.”

The forum will be live on the videoconference platform Zoom and hosted by Thompson Rivers University faculty member Lorry-Ann Austin.
