THE SILENT ALL-CANDIDATE-MEET AT MALTON'S WESTWOOD MALL

The all candidate meet at Malton's Westwood Mall was something unique in this election. It was "staged" by the outgoing councillor Eve Adams and her campaign team. Eve Adams was successful in persuading the Westwood Mall management to "avoid the debate" where she was expected to be bombarded with the issue of her "violation of city's conflict-of-interest policy" as published in the local media.

After eliminating the debate part, the "all candidate meet" yesterday evening looked like a "All Candidates Small-Vending Tables" where the candidates were instructed to remain at their tables (a table and two chairs provided at a pre-assigned location in the mall) and only meet/campaign those customers/public approaching their table. Interestingly the Eve Adam's team got a place at the main high-visibility entrance of the mall, the rest were pushed in between the candy/toys vending tables.

There was one resident distributing a flyer with the photocopy of the Toronto Star article dated Oct 25, "Councillor broke rules: Probe", and asking to "Stop Eve.!….Stop Corruption.!". Seeing public coming straight to her with these flyer in hand, Eve Adams immediately got the security guard to throw the flyer distributor out.

It was the most "silent" of All-Candidate-Meets. Eve Adams bought the show! Yet the great democracy watch-dog Mr. Donald Barber was hard-selling (at his vending table next to Eve) how he has conspired with God to call Hazel back!
