Media barred from forums
Unless you were a member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada you were not permitted to attend candidates’ forums in either Strathmore or Brooks. “I didn’t like the fact that media wasn’t allowed,” said Brooks party member Mohammed Yusuf Idriss. “We live in a free country and the press is one of those institutions that keeps people on their toes.
