First Forum, Focus Aboriginal Issues

A crowd of approximately one hundred attended the first Cranbrook Forum for the upcoming Federal Election, which took place in the Ktunaxa Building Gym last evening September 23rd.  All local candidates attended.

The format enabled a very sedate presentation of issues of particular interest to the aboriginal population. However considering the Reconciliation  Report and that many of the issues are also of interest and certainly affect the population as a whole, it was disappointing to see many sectors of the community unrepresented in the audience.
