Compton-Stanstead candidates debate

By Matthew McCully

The candidates debate held Thursday evening for the Compton-Stanstead riding was a real mover and a shaker-mostly because of the dance party happening in the room rented above the debate. There were, however, some heated exchanges among the candidates who participated in the event, organized by the Chamber of Commerce of the Haut-Saint-Francois. There are seven candidates running in the Compton-Stanstead riding for the federal election. All but one attended Thursday’s debate. In attendance were:
David Benoît – Bloc Québécois
Marie-Claude Bibeau (incumbent)- Liberal Party of Canada
Jessy McNeil-Conservative Party of Canada
Paul Reed-People’s Party of Canada
Jean Rousseau-Green Party of Canada
Jonathan Therrien-Parti Rhinocéros Party
New Democratic Party candidate Naomie Mathieu Chauvette did not attend the debate.
Each of the candidates was given one minute to introduce themselves and give a brief description of their platform. See full story in the Monday, Oct. 7 edition of The Record.
