Will MP Wilks show up for all the debates?
Letter to the Editor
Recently, the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce announced that it is already organizing an all candidates’ event for the upcoming federal election. Wonderful!
The looming question is: Will MP David Wilks show up for all the debates?
In 2011 Mr. Wilks’ attendance was 43%. He failed to attend debates in Revelstoke, Invermere, Kimberley and Cranbrook. If someone wants to be elected to act and speak on our behalf, it’s like a job interview – best to show up. No excuses. Debates are where many people can learn what each candidate stands for and whether or not they will reflect our values in government.
It will be good to see all the candidates at all the debates, especially in the communities new to the riding, like Nelson.
Yours for democracy,
