Four candidates running to be the Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP were part of a debate at the Wallaceburg branch of the Royal Canadian Legion on Saturday afternoon.
Hosted by the Wallaceburg Walpole Island First Nation Health Coalition and the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario, the debate focused on health care issues. The event was moderated by local municipal councillor Jeff Wesley.
The four candidates who took part were Anthony Li (Green), Monte McNaughton (Progressive Conservative), Brian Everaert (Trillium) and Todd Case (New Democratic Party).
There was no Liberal candidate in place for the riding when the debate was held. With no candidate available to defend the government’s record, most of the discussion put pressure on incumbent MPP Monte McNaughton. Candidates asking him about Doug Ford’s plans and policies and when the Progressive Conservatives would release a fully-costed health care plan.
