Mark your calendar! Last Candidate Standing – November 6, 2011

As you know, November 19 is Election Day inVancouver– a chance to go to the polls to cast a ballot for Mayor, Council and Park Board candidates.  Not only is this a key moment to participate inVancouver’s local democracy, it’s also a very real opportunity to help shape the forum in which decisions around the city’s public space will be made.

With all this in mind, we wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to a very special – and unique – election event.

The Vancouver Public Space Network is collaborating with UBC’s Schoolof Architectureand Landscape Architecture to produce Last Candidate Standing.  It’s an election event that turns the typical debate format ‘on its head’ – by opening the floor to all mayoral and council candidates. This year’s edition of Last Candidate takes place

Sunday, November 6, 2011
UBC Robson Square Theatre
7:00pm-9:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm)

The event is fun, fast-paced, and informative.  It will allow you to hear from incumbents, party-affiliates and independents alike on their ideas for the future of the city. 

Hosted by local author and funny man Steve Burgess, the Last Candidate features an ever-evolving debate between randomly selected politicians – each of whom have to face a ‘panel of inquisition’ that includes David Beers (Publisher, The Tyee) and SALA’s own Matthew Soules.  And to add to the excitement the event will feature musical interludes, random bits of theatre and plenty of other surprises. 

 Truly, not to be missed!

Space for this event is limited.  It’s FREE, but you need to register to attend.  To do so, click over to our EventBrite page and reserve your spot today!

Please feel free to pass this along to your networks!
