Artie Watson, Independent Candidate for Portland – Simonds (Politics)
During elections, mainstream media pay little or no attention to independent candidates. In the election narrative they are treated as an afterthought. Yet, the foundation of parliamentary democracy in New Brunswick is based on independent candidates. Much has been lost it seems.
Mr. Watson offers powerful insights and reasons for his second run at being the Member of the Legislative Assembly for Portland Simonds. There is much frustration, even betrayal, when it comes to how politics have been played in his community.
So this begs the question … will voters who claim they want change continue to behave in the same old way?
