I read with pleasure and dismay the Review’s editorial of May 23, 2018, “How to win an election. Hide til it’s all over”. Indeed. Where are the candidates for Glengarry Prescott-Russell hiding? I don’t even see lawn signs or posters on my weekly shopping trip to Hawkesbury. No bulk mail letters, no invitations to debates or town hall style talks. No ground level marketing. I didn’t know anything about most of the candidates until I read the Review of May 30, 2018. Does this lack of campaigning mean this riding doesn’t matter much against the 416, 905, 519 , 226, 289 voters?
A bouquet to the staff of the Review for providing information about the election. A brick to all candidates for hiding.
