All-candidates forum

Resident calls for a firm process when questioning federal candidates

North Okanagan-Shuswap voters will have a chance to meet candidates during a public forum Sept. 14 at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre at 7 p.m.

I sincerely hope that this limited opportunity will be an example of knowledgeable people asking well thought-out questions to the candidates.

One of the aspects of these kinds of forums in terms of questions to candidate is the annoying habit that people have of asking questions which have already been responded to in a way in which the subject matter is covered.

I sincerely hope that Peter McIntyre exercises the right to deal with those kind of questions with a reminder to the questioner that, “that point has already been covered by this candidate. Do you have another question?”

Never waste time which is of a premium value to all of us by allowing repetitious questions and answers to eat up the time.
