I had the chance to stop by the all-candidates forum on Tuesday, Feb. 26, and was impressed by the Green Party candidate (Ngaio Hotte). I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but she was well-prepared and had some really good ideas. I'm not sure I can say the same for the Liberal candidate... Snelgrove seems like a decent guy, but I'm not exactly on board with his party or their policies. The NDP didn't even show.

Corina, I would rather have a "parachute liberal"then a "doing nothing" PC. I'am sure he will be up to speed on the riding if elected. Is Manville in this riding?

Lloyd Snelgrove will win with the largest majority in the province. Any credible alternative is afraid of the consequences of going up against him.

Hi Corina,

The Green Party will be running candidates in all of the ridings in Alberta this election. You can check out the web site www.albertagreens.ca if you are interested in a Green alternative. There may not be a candidate listed at this moment, but there will be shortly.

Best of luck in making your decision!

Jennifer Brown
Green Party candidate for the riding of Bonnyville-Cold Lake

I'm sorry but who am I suppose to vote for. I'd like to vote for someone other than the PC's. But we have a parachute liberal who seems to have never even set foot east of Edmonton. His bio says part of his platform if he wins is to learn more about the area. I don't think so. And who wants to vote for the NDP. Totally useless. Just because Vermilion is out in the boonies give us some credit.
