CORNWALL Ontario – Hope Peta doesn’t get upset. I released the Shark and no blood was drawn. The event at St. Lawrence College was an utter farce today.
After an attempt by the Labour Council to hustle their chosen few to talk to kids all candidates were welcomed. The protest may have opened to doors to other candidates; but nothing was set up. There was no format and frankly even with free pizza and hot dogs there were less students that showed up than candidates.
Mark A MacDonald & Roland Besner, council candidates.
Oddly enough Elaine MacDonald, Heather Megill, Alyssa Blais, and Syd Gardiner did not show up. The buzz is that the LC has set up an alternative meet n greet for their chosen few.
The farcical event follows on the heels of Mayor Kilger getting caught for using city resources while stumping. It was not clear if he attended the event today on City Time or his own. He has gone from fleeing this writer, to being best buds and concerned for my health; to not answering questions.
Council candidate Mike O’Neil
Mr. Frost was hovering around several under age young men plying them with pamphlets and whispering sweet nothings involving hockey pucks. As there was no actual speaking element to the event he stuck around and didn’t flee this time. He has yet to speak at any candidate event.
The big buzz was about the shooting in Ottawa and if it would impact the Friends of Vets vigil tonight at the Cenotaph in Cornwall. Council candidate Gary Samler is president of the group and was in attendance at the college.
No other media were in attendance.
