Gone to scaredy-cat hidey-holes everywhere.
In Prince George:
AiMHi is presenting yet another chance for residents to hear from candidates running for office in this year’s provincial election.
Spokesperson Fred McLeod says an all-candidates forum will take place next Thursday, April 27, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the AiMHi gymnasium at 950 Kerry Street.
He says candidates from the Prince George-Valemount and Prince George-Mackenzie ridings have been invited to attend...
...He says the Liberals were provided with four possible dates in mid-March but were told by the Liberal campaign this week neither will be attending.
McLeod says he’s disappointed. “Absolutely, but we will continue without them. The challenges that people are facing are huge and they need to have an opportunity for those challenges to be brought to the fore in an election period and if government candidates choose not to be there I think it sends a statement.”
He says one of the biggest challenges facing the disadvantaged in all B.C. communities is the monthly payment of $1,033 persons with disabilities receive each month. That sum was bumped up $50 a month April 1, 2017....
Now I get it.
They're too scared to face the disabled folks they've been screwing over for 16 years.
There is a name for that I believe.
Kind of makes one wonder what would happen if kids in care, or seniors that need care, or homeless folks organized an all candidates meeting...Heads would likely explode in BCL war rooms everywhere.
And, just in case you've forgotten, the BC Liberal Party candidate in PG-Valemont is none other than RailGate origin story participant Ms. Bond....Shirley Bond.
