Terrace Daily News
Yesterday, Thursday, November 17, the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce held a luncheon featuring all the candidates who have put their names forward to lead Terrace for the next three years.
The council candidates each had 2 minutes at the microphone to introduce themselves and address a question put forward by the TDCC, "What is your vision for business and economic development in Terrace."
Next the Mayoral candidates took seats at a head table. They each had an opportunity to introduce themselves at the podium and then prepared questions were posed for each to answer. Much like the 'All Candidates Forum' at the REM Lee Theater on November 8, each could take the opportunity to make a rebuttal on any candidates answer. Candidate Don Dunster was not in attendance.
This was a short exchange of questions and answers so the moderator, Gordon Stamp-Vincent, opened the questions to the floor.
This was also the last planned debate/forum for the residents and business community to assess the ideas and performance of all the candidates. Below we have attached videos of this presentation.
The election is tomorrow, Saturday, November 19, between 8 am and 8 pm and all the voting takes place at the Terrace Arena, top floor. The location is fully accessible by entering on the new north entrance nearest to the elevator.
Video of the Mayors portion of this luncheon attached below.
It is also hosted now on Vimeo and can be watched online by clicking here.
Councillors portion of this Luncheon is also attached below.

I may say Bill Gates and Steve Jobs both dropped out.
Since we've talked about the Library I'm sure we've all heard: "Don't judge a book by it's cover"
Single handedly this is the worst problem in Terrace. If it's eye for an eye - It wont matter what the future holds for Terrace, who would want to live here?
You must be the change you want to see in the world.

Although I don't agree with physical violence, I do agree with Adam and others who don't like Barry's silly criticism of Mr. Hall's speech. Were you one of those kids that teased and bullied other kids at school because they had glasses or were overweight or had a stutter? These are all the same... ignorantly picking on someone for some kind of perceived flaw. It's ok if you don't agree about his view on the library but don't act like a bully.

You are not helping Tyson with your threats of violence. Have you considered that Barry's comment may have helped Tyson? Unfortunately, by coming to your friends defense in such a way you may have voided any ensuing support. With friends like you...

Threatening physical violence is somehow acceptable?
Hey Barry English...

For what you did to Tyson at the all candidates forum, you're lucky he didn't break your fingers... and I would have held you down for him... that was rude and uncalled for... to continue more than a week later is just disgusting...
Stop it. You're making yourself look like an idiot... if you're really that worried about it, walk up to him, stand on a stool so you can look him in the eye and tell him to his face...
He Doesn't Learn Reply

I think it is totally disrespectful to criticize Tyson Hull because he cannot pronounce the word library properly. For all we know it is a speech impediment. These days there is a lot of focus on bullying and I don't see how this is any different. I just hope that this unfair criticism does not discourage Mr. Hull or any one from coming forward for public office because someone might make fun of the way they speak.
OMG Steve Srsly?

I couldn't help it, I'm sorry.

Cyril Shelford and Alex Fraser both used the words "loggin' and minin' and fishin'" in their daily speaking. They both enjoyed long and successful political careers.
Frank Howard would never have been confused with an English professor either and he did alright for himself.
Point is, it doesn't matter if you agree with what he says or not but you want someone with the stones to make a stand and defend it, not turn tail and run at the first sign of opposition.
People always say we need to have younger people involved in politics and that they hate "politicians".
You cant have it both ways-I can't wait till the OMG and LMAO generation start running
He doesn't learn

I just watched the candidates' speeches from the Chamber of Commerce luncheon, and one thing jumped out at me.
Even after all of the criticism, and all of the time he has spent defending himself, Tyson Hull doesn't seem to learn. While apologizing for spelling mistakes, and gramatical errors, Tyson is still using the term "liberry". If he is so adamant that we don't need to spend so much money on our library, you would think that he would at least be able to pronounce the word properly.
Petty maybe, but this annoys me.
