(Swift Current & District Chamber Of Commerce Executive Director Clayton Wicks)

The Swift Current and District Chamber of Commerce is holding their all candidates forum Wednesday evening at the Sky Centre in advance of the October 26 civic election.

The event will begin at 7pm and each candidate will have a few minutes to make an opening statement before it's open to questions from the floor. The forum is also going to be live streamed at so even if you can't make it out, you can still be a part of it.

There are 3 candidates running for Mayor of Swift Current and 17 candidates running for the 6 city council seats. There will actually be 18 names on the ballot for city councillor but candidate John Parker has announced his intention to not seek a seat, however he missed the deadline to withdraw his name so it will remain on the ballot on October 26, but voters are being asked not to vote for him.
