Kerrisdale has for many years asked audience members at all-candidate meetings to write their questions on cards that are collected and sorted by topic and assigned to a designated candidate and at least one other.  Our question sorters group questions with the same topic and choose a single question about each topic that is asked to several candidates.

We find that this method of capturing and addressing audience questions allows all audience members to craft questions about issues that concern them, ensures that all candidates get equal “air time” in question period, permits organizers to present a variety of question topics to candidates, and makes for a better use of limited meeting time.  Each candidate will have 2 minutes to respond to a question.

Sponsored by the Kerrisdale Community Centre Society. Serving our community since 1943.
