Well, Bernie, you tell Dawit that he, and you as well, are more than welcome to respond to any of my policy comments on my blog briandell.blogspot.com if he can't help make a forum happen in our riding. I've found a uccab.ca sponsored forum for the Edmonton region that I'll be participating in Tuesday evening. Everyone is free to come out to watch me get grilled or do some grilling yourself! Comments on my blog are open to everyone, by the way.

Any response Dawit has to anything I have written at www.bdell.ca I will also be sure to post online in full for everyone's benefit. Now, in fairness, Ray Martin isn't responding to my efforts to contact him so I don't want to imply that Mr Isaac is the only one whom I can't engage.

As Albertans we need to hear both sides of the argument but at present we aren't hearing any argument when all politicians do is shake our hands, give us a warm smile, and promise to make life better.

We need to start talking policy. Elections that become little more than beauty contests do not encourage critical analysis.

Dawit Isaac is certainly an energetic man with a kind touch. But I think the voters of this riding want to talk about issues and that's why I would encourage Mr Isaac's volunteers to press him to help me in my efforts to organize an all-candidate's forum. I've been Mr Isaac twice now on the streets and he advised me that he would rather door-knock. That's great but voters need a policy debate. For some of my thoughts on policy issues feel free to visit www.bdell.ca I don't mean to be negative here I am just frustrated by what has seemed to be a campaign about who is nicer and more honest. I believe ALL of the candidates are respectable and honest. It takes more, however.

Dawit Issac, the Liberal candidate in this riding is a refreshing new face to the political scene. He is a well educated young man above reproach. A compassionate person who will do a great job of being a strong voice representing my family and ALL of the people of this community in a fair and balanced way. It is refreshing to have a person of Dawit's stature, honesty and skills being prepared to represent us in the Legislature.

Dawit Issac, a young family man who is energetic and intelligent is the Liberal candidate who is causing a Roar in the tradtitional ND riding. Many ND's tired of PC are willing to vote Issac into legislature for a louder Liberal voice. Issac and his campaign team are at the doors, on the phones and waving in the streets. Enthusiasm is evident in Beverly-Clareview.
