All Candidates Debate Restored in Wentworth

A large and appreciative audience offered a standing ovation to the eight federal candidates running in Cumberland-Colchester at a public debate tonight in Wentworth.

The event started with one empty chair as the Liberal candidate chose to take part in an evening TV news panel. However, Lenore Zann hustled to Wentworth to join the fray partway through the program.

It was a civil event, unlike the last federal campaign when partisan cheerleading derailed the opportunity for voters to hear from the candidates.

There were a number of occasions when candidates declared their differences in policy or approach, but it was mostly delivered with respect.

Only one candidate dropped to the mud, usually aimed at the two representing the Liberals and Conservatives. Stephen Garvey of the National Citizens Alliance of Canada used his speaking time to restate history rather than answer questions that asked what he would do in dealing with current concerns.

Garvey used time in his two-minute closing to present the Liberal and Conservative candidates with soothers. When he said they could suck on these the audience voiced their strong disapproval.

A number of questions were asked by the audience. Others had been submitted by the candidates to pose to their opponents, while others were asked by the debate moderator.

Response from the audience, after the debate, suggests they appreciated the information provided by the candidates.

A number of those candidates have agreed to interviews next week on Morning Talk on Six Rivers Radio. A schedule of interviews is now being prepared for the final week of the campaign.

The entire debate will be broadcast on Six Rivers Radio a few times over the next week for those who could not attend tonight’s public presentation. Watch here for the dates and times of those broadcasts.
