As a public service to our listeners, Kootenay Coop Radio offered Election Candidates from the Regional Districts in our broadcast area as well as the City of Nelson an opportunity to showcase their candidacy with a short 5-15 minute radio interview.

Interviews are going to be aired on Kootenay Morning, our flagship current affairs program.

With the knowledge that there are approximately 30 candidates in the races for the City of Nelson and the various RCDK races of interest to our listenership, we will also create special programming to ensure that all interested candidates will have their interviews broadcast prior to the election on October 20.

The interviews are available here and represent candidates who accepted the offer to be interviewed.

Good luck to all candidates.

** This initiative is made possible by a grant Kootenay Co-op Radio received from the Community Radio Fund of Canada, the only organization mandated to financially support campus and community radio stations in Canada.
