Open House brings in constituents

MLA Norm Macdonald (center) listens as constituents talk with him about their concerns during an open house event at the Community Centre on Thursday afternoon. The popular and widely respected New Democrat is a frequent visitor to town, plumbing the depths of constituents' concerns and knowledge about recent events. Top subjects for discussion during this visit? The BC Liberals search for a new leader, the NDP's response and a possible replacement of Opposition Leader Carol James (Norm had "no comment" on that question), development and the HST. Macdonald will be returning to Victoria on Monday and will be back in Revelstoke in December. David F. Rooney photo
