Last of the Candidates

Over the past 4 weeks we have heard interviews with candidates from red, blue, orange, and green, put together in a #nanaimopodcast called #nanaimochronicles by Tod Maffin. I want to thank Tod for being a contributing community member to the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour.

In today’s episode of the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, voices from the remaining candidates! We hear the final installment of Tod Maffin’s Nanaimo Chronicles podcast, with introductions from Brian Marlatt (Progressive Conservative Party) and Jennifer Clarke (Peoples Party of Canada).

After that, I spend a half hour with James Chumsa, from the Communist Party of Canada.

In the final half hour, we hear from Geoff Stoneman, a candidate hoping to win another Independent seat in the House of Commons.

Here is the file, airing live on CHLY 101.7fm on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 at 8am PST

Unfortunately, there is one more independent, named Echo White, who I wasnt able to interview in time for this release.

Though CHLY broadcasts to over 40 coastal communities (and 4 or 5 different ridings), I chose to feature running candidates in the home riding for CHLY 101.7 FM. In #NanaimoLadysmith, there will be a total of 9 candidates to choose from on October 21st!

Radio: 101.7FM CHLY, every Wednesday morning at 8.
