Letters: Being silenced

Mayoral candidate in all Southern Vancouver Island communities denied entrance

I am writing this letter to inform you (the media) of the extremely undemocratic meetings that are taking place in the city of Victoria and surrounding area.

On two separate occasions I have been turned away at the door of open candidates meetings and not allowed to speak thus giving the other candidates an unfair advantage and showing the true colors of those who actually control these elections.

The public deserves to know that this is how politics works in a so called democratic country.

I am sending this email to all possible news sources in hopes that at least one of you cares enough about democracy to print what is really going on in this election.

Polls have shown I am more than just a fringe candidate and a force to be reckoned with. This in fact is why the powers that be, have begun to silence me.

I hope you will consider what I’ve said and tell the public the truth.

My name is David Shebib for mayor and you can reach me at 250-818-1992.

David Shebib
