I am a board member of the Downtown Residents’ Association and helped organize the all-candidates’ debate co-hosted by the association and the Ecole Whitehorse Elementary School Council.
The event was generally quite positive, and I am proud to have been involved in putting together a forum for people to hear for themselves what the three candidates in the Whitehorse Centre byelection have to say on the issues.
However. I would like to go on record saying that in no way did the Downtown Residents’ Association play any part in the dirty tricks by the Liberal campaign at the debate.
It’s unfortunate that it tainted the event, and in some ways the overall election.
