MP John Duncan too busy for youth?

Dear editor,

I attended an all candidates forum at North Island College April 13 and was extremely disappointed that MP John Duncan did not attend.  NIC is an important part of communities across the North Island.  I find it hard to believe that the three other candidates were able to find time in their busy schedule but Mr. Duncan could not.  I think it more likely that he believes, as many do, that youth don’t vote and therefore he shouldn’t waste his time finding out what their concerns are.  In part he’s right.  On May 2nd I will not be voting for John Duncan.

Editor’s note: John Duncan told attendants at the all-candidates meeting in Port McNeill that he missed the NIC event because was meeting with volunteer firefighters.
