An election forum on immigration drew a large crowd to the downtown Kelowna library on Saturday.

Ten candidates from the Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola and Kelowna-Lake Country ridings addressed about 100 attendees.

Immigration, refugees and migrant workers were among the issues debated, and several members of the public waved banners promoting rights for foreign workers. The event was co-hosted by Amnesty International, KAIROS and Citizens for Public Justice.
