And this just in from the BC NDP

The BC NDP Leadership debate tour will kick off in Surrey at the SFU Campus on on March 20. The debate tour will stop in a total of nine communities across British Columbia, ending April 6 in Terrace.

Each of the nine debates has an issue theme, reflecting the broad range of issues faced by families all across BC.

The first section of each debate will be based on the theme of the debate, with three questions posed by the moderator(s), and developed with the input of stakeholders on the issue. The second section of each debate will take a maximum of five questions from the floor and submitted in advance online. Each candidate will have an equal amount of time to respond to each question. At the conclusion of the question periods, each candidate will make a three minute closing statement.

Questions from the floor will be submitted in writing, and collected by volunteers at the event. Questions will be vetted by BCNDP staff to avoid duplicate questions, and then randomly drawn by the moderator.
