FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BURNABY, B.C., (Oct. 1, 2019) — The Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) and the Graduate Student Society (GSS) will be hosting a debate at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby Campus where voters, especially youth, can be informed and involved at the local level.
Candidates representing the Burnaby North-Seymour ridings have been invited to the debate.

The event is free to students and the SFU community and registration is required.
This will be a great opportunity for SFSS and GSS members to learn the candidates’ stances on important issues, but also an opportunity for all guests to share their views on relevant topics and to ask questions!
