Dear editor, Re: All-candidates' meeting ends as incumbent fails to show (Nov. 10 Independent & Free Press). I was upset to read the article regarding the above "was cancelled before it began because one of the candidates didn't show". Although life always brings unforeseen circumstances and I sympathize with Irene McCauley's family crisis, that did not enable her to show up, where was the fairness to Rosanna Palmieri? We had heard Irene McCauley's views and expectations, we had seen them for quite a few years and although she did a good job, how was Halton Hills being fair to newcomer Rosanna Palmieri when no one was able to hear her speak or answer questions the community might have had for her. If we are going to be fair and give an equal opportunity to all those who ran I disagree with Christ the King School Council spokesperson Anne Zebarth's statement that organizers decided to cancel the event "in the spirit of being neutral" and that they wanted to be "equally fair to both candidates". No one gave any consideration to Rosanna Palmieri or to the residents who wanted to hear her speak. Let's face it, fair is fair and we weren't. Ted Bosma, Georgetown
