But potential voters weren't buying. All four MLA candidates for the Chester-St.Margaret's riding spoke on the issue of open net-pen fish farms at an event yesterday in Blandford.
"In a question and answer period, Killawee admitted that the Liberal Party platform does not address fish farms at all."
"Killawee appeared outside the Blandford Community Centre with the other three candidates for the riding — Jessica Alexander (Green), Danielle Barkhouse (PC), and Amy Reitsma (NDP) — at an event hosted by the Twin Bays Coalition and the Healthy Bays Network, two organizations opposed to fish farms on the south shore. Inside the community centre, Cooke Aquaculture was hosting a regulatory “open house” required for the expansion of its Bayswater fish farm — which has already happened."
