How it will work

  • 45 minutes of discussion
  • 5 to 15 minutes of ‘Q&A’ from the audience
  • Mingling afterwards for candidates who have time to meet students

The Panel will start with 45 minutes of discussion between the provincial election candidates based on questions submitted by students and faculty beforehand and some that are asked live that will be sent to the host on stage.

Five to 15 minutes will be dedicated to any questions from the audience.

After The Panel, candidates will be invited to mingle with students in the Student Centre for as long as they would like.
