Released by: Joël MacIntosh
People’s Alliance Candidate; Kent South
 
Having witnessed first hand the disastrous effects that the currentProgressive Conservative government of David Alward and our current MLA Claude Williams has had in it’s failure to properly consult the citizens of this province over the issue of hydraulic fracturing resulting in months of protests and extreme police presence. I am pleased that the People’s Alliance will continue to push forward with the belief that we, the people, deserve to have our voices heard through a direct vote and not an election promise that may or may not be upheld!
