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.
Editor’s note: Doug Hillian is running for a seat on Courtenay council.
