There was some awkwardness at the Edmonton mayoralty forum last night…..
One of the candidates—Bob Cousineau—walked off the stage—after announcing that he felt the last forum was rigged–and then demanded an open-mic forum as opposed to randomly pulled questions…
He did come back—and then finished his introduction with this:
“I’d like to have open questioning. Why not? Whats wrong with asking questions that people want to hear the answers to? Tough questions—lets talk about that terrorist act. No? You dont want to hear about it? You dont want to know our police chief knew about this guy in 2015? Did our mayor know?”
The moderator then told Cousineau he was close to being liable—and suggested they move on to the next candidate. (photo credit–CBC)
