In Guelph on Tuesday, the Action Read literacy centre will host a public meeting of the byelection candidates.Presumably Kovach's staff is hard at work brainstorming and polling what kind of conflict will play best to explain her once again hiding from voters and the media.
The Green, NDP, Liberal and Animal Alliance Environment Voters Party candidates will participate but Kovach has a scheduling conflict, Action Read said.
Kovach said she will be campaigning in Guelph before attending the Kitchener rally with Harper that day, but was unaware of which plans would conflict with the candidates' meeting.
But Guelph's voters can't help but to recognize that while every other candidate has done everything possible to participate in a public exchange of ideas, Kovach has done nothing but show contempt for the concept. And that pattern combined with the Cons' track record should make it clear that constituents can only expect similar evasion from Kovach if she were to win the seat.
