"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Tyler Said

Tyler questions why I am a moderator on the panel of the Federal almost All- Candidates Meeting since i have openly declared my choice in the election.

Tyler is an undecided voter and twenty- four years old.

I am not the moderator Tyler. I am a member of the panel because I was invited to participate and am pleased to do so.

The event is sponsored by The Auroran weekly newspaper as a community service. All-
candidate meetings are not part of the formal election process. If no-one volunteers to oranize such an event, it doesn't happen.

If you have concerns about the propriety of a person declared to be voting Liberal
being part of the panel, you will have to make a decision. This may be the only opportunity you get to see and hear the candidates in the election.

It is going to be on television.

You will have the usual control. I wish you well in your deliberation.
