Maverick Party candidate Tariq Elnaga is holding a town hall tonight at Frank Wills Memorial Hall to provide further insight into the new Western-based political party for voters.

Running exclusively in Conservative strongholds in Western Canadian, the party was formed to stand up for the West.

"The difference between us and any other party is we have zero votes to tender, win or lose in Quebec and Ontario, and that makes a huge difference," says Elnaga.

He says the Conservative Party has turned its back on the West in this election and focusing on winning votes in Ontario and Quebec.

"One of the things the Conservatives have done now is if you don't buy into their climate plan, wherever you are in the caucus, you're no longer welcome there. Well, that automatically puts 34 Conservative CPC MPs in silence, saying you can't stand up for Western industries."

He says the town hall is a chance to learn more about him and why the Maverick Party is a viable alternative to voting Conservative.

"That's actually the part I really enjoy. I usually do a quick talk, maybe about 15 or 20 minutes, explaining who I am and what the party's about, but the best engagement we see is during the open forum and Q & A, so we do a little bit of both."

A few other Maverick candidates from surrounding constituencies will also be in attendance.

It starts at 7 p.m.
