It’s now a point of pride that we’ve made it 61 days in and I’ve kept up my blog this whole time; it’s definitely at the point where I can’t stop now!
Tonight was the second community debate in Winnipeg South Centre and it was a different atmosphere. Instead of a formal panel, it was a town hall debate style with questions from the audience. It was a less structured event with much interaction from participants; at times, the candidates were interacting with the audience confirming questions or trying to respond to concerns. At times, the moderator seemed to have some difficulty keeping the community centre in line.
But the atmosphere did take an interesting turn of events: the Green Party candidate brought a ‘friend’ to the event, representing the Conservative Party. This got a lot of play in media, both online and traditional.
All I can say, is that the voters of Winnipeg South Centre are well served when their candidates (or most of them anyway) are willing and able to talk about their record, the record of their party, and the record of their party leader. The Liberal Party of Canada is proud of their accomplishments, and Jim Carr will be a strong voice for his constituents.
I invite you to follow Jim’s social media to stay in touch to what’s going on in the riding.
