The Whistler Chamber of Commerce will hold its all candidates meeting on Monday, Nov. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m.

In years past the Whistler Arts Council and the Whistler Off Road Cycling Association (WORCA) have also held all candidates meetings.

The Arts Council will not be hosting a candidates meeting this year though representatives plan on working closely with the Chamber to address issues in the arts, while WORCA is still considering hosting a debate.
