EDMONTON, ALBERTA — The fourth edition of the Philippine Media Association of Alberta’s “Meet The Press” is on Sunday, September 19, 10:30 a.m. at Palabok House Restaurant, 10525 51 Avenue NW.
PMAA president Nicky Gocuan said that the guest is Edmonton mayoral candidate Michael Oshry.
The first edition last August 29, Member of Parliament for Edmonton West, Kelly McCauley was the guest and the second edition was graced by Edmonton mayoral candidate Malik Chukwudi. MP for Mill Woods, Tim Uppal was last week’s guest.
Gocuan said that the “Meet The Press” event is a weekly interview of invited guests to give them another venue to discuss their plans and platform and explain further why they are running for public office.
Canadians will cast their votes on September 20 for the federal elections and on October 18 for the municipal elections.
Gocuan said that the “Meet The Press” is the second project by the PMAA after successfully hosting the Edmonton Mayoral Candidates’ Forum last August 14 where seven out of 10 candidates were present to talk about their platforms.
Gocuan said that the “Meet The Press” is open to all media practitioners who would like to ask questions.
“We will also broadcast this live on our PMAA Facebook page and we welcome questions that we will bring up to the candidates,” said Gocuan, a columnist for a community newspaper and co-host of a weekly talk show.(PR)
