The Anirniq Ward Candidates’ Forum for this fall’s municipal election is only 8 days away!

Community members have supplied us with some good questions to put to the five candidates running in our ward:
Mark Davies
Bev Esslinger
Ali Haymour
Erin Rutherford
Tyler Zutz

Join us on September 28 at 7:30 to find out which candidates provide the answers that make sense to you!

In Person Attendance:
We are having an in-studio audience. You are invited to sign up on Eventbrite if you want to attend in person. An in-person audience provides encouragement for the candidates and creates an atmosphere that is responsive and dynamic. Plus: you can enhance your position as one of the cool people in your neighbourhood by saying that you were at the first ever Anirniq candidates’ forum.

However, new Alberta Public Health Guidelines will be in place for this event. This means:

• Provide physical proof in the form of a written or printed copy of a report that they have obtained a privately-paid, Health Canada approved rapid antigen, rapid PCR or lab-based PCR test within 72 hours prior to the Forum event and this test must show a negative result. (

Alberta’s version of vaccine passports or negative COVID tests will be screened at the door prior to gaining admission.

All attendees will need to be masked while indoors during the entire event (with the exception of candidates while they are answering a question and are socially distanced from other candidates and other people). Please bring a comfortable mask to wear through the event.

Food or drink will not be allowed indoors during the event. We hope you can join us!
