We got sick of hearing millennials are lazy, or entitled, or uninvolved.
In fact, we got so tired of it that we decided to prove all three of these stereotypes wrong in one epic night.
We’re doing something with digital that hasn’t been done before, bringing together the front-runners for mayor in Vancouver’s municipal election, and giving you the chance to ask them whatever you want.
On Wednesday, October 10, live from the heart of downtown Vancouver, we’re going to bring you the mayoral debate the millennial generation deserves.
Yes, Vancouver isn’t affordable.
Yes, getting a job is near impossible.
Yes, our nickname is No Fun City.
Which is why we need to sit down face to face with anyone who has a chance of becoming the next leader of this ridiculously beautiful city.
We’re not perfect. But we’re certainly trying to get there.
It’s time we grew up, acted like we give a shit, and got some of the answers we’re looking for.
So join us alongside our debate partners Airbnb, Amazon, Unbounce, Uber, Lyft, Article, the Forum for Millennial Leadership (FML), and Colony Digital as we discuss every major issue facing the city right now, from housing and affordability to transportation, tech, and more.
Four years ago, only 1 in 3 people between 18-34 turned out to vote in Vancouver’s last municipal election. It’s no wonder then that those in City Hall don’t focus enough on the needs of Vancouver’s millennials.
We plan on helping to change that.
We’ll be sharing more information over the coming days about who the candidates are, the rules, the expert panel, how to submit your questions, and more. But be sure, this won’t be like any debate you’ve ever seen before.
When: Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Time: 7 pm (Pregame at 5:30 pm)
How to watch: Daily Hive Vancouver Facebook or on DailyHive.com
RSVP: On our Facebook event so you don’t miss out on any of the action
A limited number of free tickets to attend the debate in person will be available on Tuesday, October 9.
