Around 100 people attended the all-candidates debate hosted by the Mount Allison Student Union last Sunday, September 14, 2014. If you missed the debates, worry not! CHMA reporter Jisun Kim was on the scenes to record the debate in its entirety.

In part one of the debate coverage, we hear candidates respond to questions from students and members of the public on the topic of education and social policy.

What will the candidates do to help students pay down their debt?

What will the candidates do to address the issue of access to mental health services?

What wil the candidates do to make New Brunswick communities welcoming to immigrants?

The questions were followed by an open session for candidates to respond to each other’s arguments.
