Dale Goldhawk to moderate all-candidates’ meeting in Midhurst
AWARE News Network
Dale Goldhawk – consumer advocate, award-winning journalist, and the host of Goldhawk Fights Back on 740 AM Zoomer Radio – will moderate the Springwater all-candidates’ meeting to be held in Midhurst this week.
This was Goldhawk’s reply after being approached by AWARE Simcoe to be the moderator:
“Just two days ago, I moderated a debate with Olivia Chow, Doug Ford and John Tory. I thought that was tough until I got your request to moderate the Ward 5 all-candidates meeting in Springwater, to be held in Midhurst on Wednesday, October 15.
“As most people know, I have had some involvement with issues in Simcoe County but I have never played any public role, never spoken out in a partisan manner, during an election campaign — not in Simcoe, not in Toronto, not anywhere in Canada. That’s where I draw the line as an advocacy journalist. Election campaigns are reserved for the people and the candidates. They do the talking and deciding.
“With some reluctance, I will agree to host the all-candidates meeting and to do what I can to make sure everybody gets a fair hearing.”
The all-candidates meeting will be held at Midhurst United Church, 81 Doran Road, from 7-9:30 pm.
