Little and Saxton MIA
I'll say up front that it was appalling and cowardly that neither Conservative candidate could be bothered to drop by. Shame on them.
My take: both Lynne Quarmby and Claire Martin impressed me greatly with their intelligence, enthusiasm, and obvious knowledge. The crowd liked them too.
The Liberals in attendance, Jonathan Wilkinson and Terry Beech left me cold; more or less just reciting talking points and waffling at any time when they were put on the spot. Really, they felt like the kind of party hacks that I just never vote for.
The NDP was represented by Carleen Thomas and Carol Baird Ellan, both obviously very smart, with different but very interesting backgrounds, but again, not my cup of tea. Ellan seemed very negative, and Thomas felt inexperienced and not entirely well prepared.
