Although I did not attend the recent Whitehorse Centre all-candidates forum, in reading the coverage of the event I was disappointed to learn of the inference, by an audience member, that the unfortunate passing of a homeless individual was as an indirect result of Elizabeth Hanson’s involvement as a federal government employee at the time.
This suggestion is inappropriate.
An incongruous shadow has now been cast under which Hanson must now campaign that will unfairly tax her resources and efforts.
The end result of this exercise will most likely be that folks in the Whitehorse Centre riding will not get the chance they otherwise might have had to learn what Hanson had to offer them as a potential MLA.
In this respect, I hope I am wrong.
