VIDEO: Candidates debate fracking, LNG and climate change policy

Earlier this week, the folks behind Gen Why hosted a climate change-focused candidates debate in Vancouver.

BC Green Party leader Jane Sterk, BC Liberal Vancouver-Kensington candidate Gabby Kalaw, NDP environment critic Rob Fleming, BC Conservative Vancouver-Point Grey candidate Duane Nickull, and independent Cariboo-North MLA Bob Simpson sat elbow to elbow with three young questioners on the Rio Theatre stage, answering questions on liquified natural gas, pipelines, and the best way to curb emissions in the province.
