PC Candidates Debate Land Issues on Tuesday, January 22nd
It was a great final PC-sponsored debate at the Murphy Centre in Charlottetown last night with a packed house.
I’m posting this (and sharing on Facebook) as a last-day reminder that if you want to vote for me to become the next PC Party leader you have until 4pm today to take out a membership. You can do this online at: http://www.peipc.ca/become_a_member or over the phone by calling the PEI PC Office at 902-628-8679.
There is one final debate happening on the “Land” coming up next Tuesday at the Murchison Centre in Charlottetown. The following appeared in this week’s Eastern Graphic:
“The National Farmers Union (NFU) is sponsoring a forum with the five Progressive Conservative (PC) leadership candidates on the issue of the shifting control of land in PEI.
The forum will be held at the Murchison Centre, 17 St Pius X Ave, Charlottetown on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 7:30 pm. The NFU has long maintained the weakness of the Lands Protection Act and other land-related acts has caused an alarming consolidation of land in fewer and fewer hands.
The question that the National Farmers Union asks of each of the five PC leadership hopefuls is: How will you exercise your political will to protect the land? The forum chair will be newly retired journalist Bill McGuire. Representing the NFU is its District Director, Douglas Campbell.
Dennis King, Kevin J. Arsenault, Shawn Driscoll, Allan Dale and Sarah Stewart Clark are seeking the PC leadership at a convention planned for February 9.”
