Michael Hunter says that dozens of people from other political parties continue to join his campaign to seek the NDP nomination for the federal riding of Prince George ? Peace River. ?Canadians want a quality public healthcare system,? he says. ?They know that fiscal conservatives like Jay Hill and Paul Martin want to privatize healthcare, and that their best option is to go with a candidate like myself who supports proper funding for medical and senior care programs. We?ve been taking calls and bringing them on board for weeks now.?
Recent talk of putting off a federal election does not bother this candidate hopeful. ?A spring election means we get to debate Jay (Hill) before he and the conservatives establish a single national policy. A fall election means we get five more months to meet people. It is a no lose situation for us.?
A revised schedule has Hunter speaking at the Dawson Creek Senior Citizen?s Hall on Wednesday, February 25th at 7 PM.
