"Street Forum" Brings Democratic Concerns to Conservative Candidates Front Door
LETHBRIDGE: Roughly 70-people came out to Wednesday's "street forum" in front of Conservative candidate Jim Hillyer's office.
They came to voice their concerns over Hillyer's decision to skip the public forums leading up to the election.
Hillyer did not make an appearance, and his campaign manager explained that it was because he received short notice, so he couldn't adjust his door knocking schedule.
Forum organizer Andy Davies commented that the event was non-partisan, and focussed on the democratic concerns that come up when any party candidate refuses to take questions from the citizens they want to represent.
He added that if Hillyer won't step forward now to deal with the tough questions, what will change if he's elected to represent us in Ottawa.
