There was a federal candidates forum on poverty reduction and social policy April 19 at the UNBSJ Grand Hall in uptown Saint John. The event was recorded by Saint John Radio 103.5 FM, and sponsored by the Human Development Council (HDC), Make Poverty History, the UNBSJ Urban and Community Studies Institute, and Vibrant Communities. The forum was moderated by Randy Hatfield of HDC. We’ve created podcasts of the forum in two parts. Part I is a moderated discussion with the five candidates. In Part II, the candidates answer questions from audience members.
