The debate will be live streamed to the Campbell River Mirror’s FaceBook page (@CampbellRiverMirror) as well as the Tidemark Theatre’s FaceBook page (@tidemarktheatre). A recording of the debate will be made available the next day on the Chamber’s YouTube Channel, the Campbell River Mirror website (, and will begin airing on Shaw Spotlight Channel 4 @ 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11 and in addition, airing randomly until the election.
