Written by Executive Director on . Posted in Community News, South Queens Chamber News

The South Queens Chamber of Commerce invites you to attend the Federal Candidates Debate on:

  • Thursday, October 1, 2015
  • Astor Theatre in Liverpool
  • at 7 p.m

The candidates for the four main parties running in the riding of South Shore/St. Margaret’s take part in a candidates’ debate. The event is being organized by the South Queens Chamber of Commerce which has hosted similar events during previous municipal, provincial and federal elections.

The candidates participating in the debate are, in alphabetical order:

  • Alex Godbold, NDP Party
  • Bernadette Jordan, Liberal Party
  • Richard Biggar, Green Party
  • Richard Clark, Conservative Party

“The South Queens Chamber of Commerce’s goal in hosting this debate is to provide people with the opportunity to hear the candidates speak on issues that are important to our community and our economy,” explained SQCC president, Robin Anthony. “We are looking forward to an interesting exchange of information and hope this will encourage people to participate in our democratic process by voting in the federal election on October 19.”

In preparing for the debate, the Chamber canvassed its members for questions to ask the candidates. Questions covering a range of topics were selected and will be provided to all candidates in advance.

The debate format will allow each candidate to give an opening and closing statement and to address each question. Candidates will be given equal time to speak throughout the program.

Audience members may also submit questions. Everyone will be given a card as they enter the theatre and asked to submit their questions in writing. The moderator will present the candidates with as many audience questions as time allows. The moderator for the debate is Kevin Page, Vice President of the Chamber, who has moderated SQCC-sponsored debates in the past.

Doors open at the Astor Theatre on Main Street at 6:15 p.m. on October 1. There is no assigned seating.

Audience members are asked not to bring signs or placards into the theatre.

Living with ‘Living Shorelines’ – Workshop – May 5 & 6

Invitation from White Point Beach Resort to attend:

Living with ‘Living Shorelines’ – Workshop -May 5 & 6, 2014

As you might expect, here at White Point we take pride in our coastline – we’re surrounded by the Atlantic. We celebrate and share it daily with our guests, yet worry about it with every storm, and season change. We know we aren’t the only ones watching, concerned – there are many businesses, municipalities, homeowners and organizations who share our concerns as we observe the impact of a ‘living shoreline’.

We’d learned about and attended an initiative the Ecology Action Centre (EAC) had hosted along the Northumberland Shore. Presentations and hands-on demonstrations offered different approaches and theories around preservation, retention…management and acceptance.

Each shoreline in Nova Scotia is unique, different topography and geology, currents and bodies of water against distinct shorelines. We approached the EAC about collaborating to present something similar, yet specifically spoke to the conditions along the Atlantic Coastline of the South Shore. ‘Living Shorelines’ is the result of those discussions.

We are delighted with the resulting 2 day workshop crafted to bring together local organizations and resources who are doing exceptional work in protection, restoration, research and education along with John Flood or Maryland, USA who has been a leader in coastal management.

On behalf of the coordinating committee, consisting of ECA, Helping Nature Heal and ourselves, we invite you to take a look at the upcoming 2 day workshop consider attending, and please do pass the information along to your colleagues and associates.

For your convenience, Living with Living Shorelines, full program is available online at

On behalf of our team here at White Point, many thanks
