On Thursday Pulse Mornings welcomed some of the New Westminster school trustee candidates running in the October 20th municipal election for day three of our South of the Fraser candidate conversations taking place over the next three weeks on Pulse 107.7 FM.

Gurveen Dhaliwal (Team Cote), Alejandro Diaz (Independent), Cyrus Sy (New West Progressives), Steve Tsonev (Independent), and Mary Lalji (Independent) took part in today’s event (for a full list of  trustee candidates click here)

Topics in the discussion, moderated by Pulse Morning’s Ian Power, ranged from what the key issue is in the election and how trustees would advance their positions on the matter, what additional forms of sexual orientation and gender identity acceptance programs trustees would like to see implemented in New Westminster schools, and immediate actions the candidates would take to ensure the recruitment and retention of teachers, teacher aids, French language teachers and other critical staff in classrooms.
