Courtenay candidate Hillian likes balance on council

Dear editor,

Some people have asked why my response to the Common Sense group is not posted on their website.

Dear editor,

Some people have asked why my response to the Common Sense group is not posted on their website.

Quite simply, I missed their deadline, and extend my regrets to those inconvenienced by being unable to find my answers. If anyone wishes to see how I responded, the survey is posted at www.doughillian.ca.

Some have tried to cast this election as a left/right contest of sorts.

Like most candidates, I have political beliefs and convictions that I’m pleased to discuss with anyone interested, but I reject such simplistic analysis and reiterate what I stated at the all-candidate forum.

It is important that we elect a balanced council that represents the diversity of viewpoints among our citizens, and that we then work across our differences to provide the best governance for all.

Doug Hillian,

Courtenay
