QUESTION ADDRESSED TO MORINVILLE COUNCIL CANDIDATES
There is a lot of discussion by the candidates in regard to working closely with the Chamber [of Commerce] and forming committees to improve our local shopping issues.
Out of the 15 candidates running in the election, seven (Thiessen, Radford, Turnbull, [Luker-]Chevalier, Pattison, Trapani and Bertschi) used the local sign shops. One (Roy) made her own. Nine (Thiessen, Radford, Turnbull, Chevalier, Pattison, Krauskopf, Roy, Trapani and Bertschi) used the local printing store [for other materials].
My question to the rest of the candidates is…if elected, how do you plan on helping the local businesses without supporting them yourself?
