Last week we were critical of Cariboo-Prince George Conservative candidate Todd Doherty for attending meetings that should be for elected officials only.
And we stand by those comments.
However, it shouldn’t have only been the Prince George Free Press that pointed the finger at Doherty and said “that is wrong.”
Where are the New Democrats and the Liberals?
Give Doherty and the Conservatives credit for understanding that they need to have a candidate in place long before the writ is dropped in the fall. And give Doherty credit for making the effort to get out into the community to get a handle on the issues facing the riding. He just shouldn’t get special access because he is running for the party in power.
We’ve known for a long, long time that the next federal election is going to be this fall. Heck, for a time last fall, there was speculation that it was going to this spring.
So, once again, where are the New Democrats and the Liberals?
There has been nary a peep out of the two parties locally since the last federal election. And here we are six months away from another federal election and the two parties remain silent … no doubt wondering why the Conservatives keep winning in Cariboo-Prince George and Prince George-Peace River.
