The questions for the Chamber’s forums are directly related to Chamber policies, which have been developed on behalf of local business. Questions were also accepted from the Chamber membership via email submissions and from the audience on each of the three evenings. Additionally, the Chamber has provided each candidate in Medicine Hat, Redcliff and Cypress County with a questionnaire, which when completed by the candidates and received by the Chamber, is posted to this page of our site.
