2018 Debate around NGOs in Whitehorse with councillor and mayoral candidates
October 18, 2018, is the date of the City of Whitehorse election. VBY gave non-profit organisations in Whitehorse the opportunity to think about the issues that matter to them.
On September 28, 5:00 pm to 7:15 pm at MacBride Museum (2nd Floor), VBY gathered councillor and mayoral candidates to discuss the non-profit sector, and the challenges we all face. 3 mayoral candidates as well as 18 councillor candidates attended the debate. One candidate was represented by someone else (Introduction only).
