Candidates running in the two Kamloops ridings in the provincial election are now on video — the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce today (April 3, 2017) posted videos of interviews with them.

The chamber says it spent three months consulting with its membership on business-related issues and identified three key questions to ask the candidates:

• What do you see as the greatest economic issues facing British Columbia over the next four years and what will you / your party do to address them?

• What do you see as the greatest economic opportunities for the BC Interior? What will you / your party do to encourage economic development in these areas?

* Our members have reported that challenges in accessing health care are becoming an impediment for recruiting and retaining employees in the Kamloops area. What will you / your party do to address the shortage in doctors and other medical services in our region?

Candidates’ responses are broken down by question and can be viewed here.

Chamber president Paul Ross says the business group hopes the videos will help voters make their decisions on May 9.
