All Candidates Forum Held in Orangeville

Shelburne | by Phil DeLand  

Dufferin Caledon Federal Candidates Forum was held Tuesday night at ODSS.

All the candidates were on the same page when it comes to putting Dufferin-Caledon first.

The Dufferin Caledon Federal Candidates Forum was held Tuesday night at Orangeville District Secondary School.

It was standing room only when the candidates gave their opening remarks.

Conservative representative Kyle Seeback said if elected he'll hold four town hall sessions per year across the riding.

He said he believes in a "top up" political structure and wants to hear from the people in order to take their issues right to Ottawa.

Chad Ransom, representing the People's Party of Canada said his party is kind of like "the new kids on the block."

He said his party promotes free thinking amongst its members.

Russ Emo was on hand representing the Christian Heritage Party of Canada.

Emo said his party puts the family first and that the debt people have to incur by going to school or owning a home splits up that family dynamic.

Stefan Wiesen said if elected for the Green Party, he would work towards alternative energy sources in Dufferin-Caledon.

He also said he believes in "the 3 P's" - People Planet Prosperity.

The NDP was represented by Allison Brown.

She said one of her priorities is affordable housing to help deal with homelessness in the riding.

Finally, Michele Fisher spoke about the importance of re-electing a Liberal government.

She stands by integrity in politics, something that was instilled on her at a young age by her mother.

Fisher believes in the saying "together we will."
