Jilian Saweczko, the Conservative candidate for our ward, did not attend the only all candidates debate in York South–Weston, which was held tonight.
The start of the debate was delayed in the hopes that Saweczko would arrive. Organizers kept an empty chair for her throughout the night.
At the end of the debate, the moderator said “If I could just clarify one thing… we did actually send three, or four? … five invitations to [Jilian Saweczko]; we got a reply from the campaign manager saying she would be here. Her website is Jilian.ca. If you would like to send a question or a comment, be my guest. Ask about democracy.”
