Three of the four candidates running in Lethbridge West took questions fom the media and the public at Tuesday night’s candidates forum held at the Lethbridge Public Library. The NDP’s Shannon Phillips took the opportunity to point fingers at UCP leader Danielle Smith, saying the party lacks leadership. Phillips also addressed healthcare, and how her party recently announced a teaching clinic for medical professionals in Lethbridge if the NDP forms government. For the Alberta Liberal Party, Pat Chizek, said she’s hoping to be a different choice for those who are tired of the same two parties.
And Cheryl Seaborn who’s running for the UCP says the physician shortage in the province pre-dates the UCP being in government.
Missing from the forum was Alberta Party candidate for Lethbridge west, Braham Luddu.
The Alberta provincial election is coming up May 29th but early voting will run from May 23 to the 27th at different polling stations across the city.
