Quote, unquote "If a political party is paying the campaign expenses of a candidate and that candidate is successful in their quest, what if the party has some sort of an agenda to forward and they're paying the expenses of the candidate? At some point you have dance with who brought you. Running as an independent I am only accountable to myself and the people of the riding." "The number one concern I've been hearing is healthcare. A close second is a lot of people want lower taxes. I'm also hearing a lot about accountability in government, promise keeping." "I promised myself a year-and-a-half ago that I was going to run. And that's a promise I'm keeping." "All I'm doing in this race is I'm making myself available. I am an option." ·"What I'm doing is part campaigning and part surveying. I call it `camveying'. Instead of trying to sell the people a platform and tell them this is why you should vote for me, when I go to the doors I'm INDEPENDENT taking notes, I'm listening to the people. So that if I'm elected I already have a head start, as to the message, as to the platform I'm taking to Ottawa with me." "The area has a tendency to vote in a youthful way."
