FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Voters packed the Lido Theatre on Tuesday evening for the 2018 Fort St. John municipal election all-candidates forum.
The forum was jointly hosted by the three local media organizations: 100.1 Moose FM, the Alaska Highway News, and CJDC-TV and moderated by AHN Managing Editor Matt Preprost and Moose FM News Director Chris Newton (the guy who wrote this article).

The entire three-hour long forum can be watched below.
