 You have a good point in general. But overall the Current Conservative 
 party does not answer questions.
 Peter Braid did not answer any of my questions while in office.  The 
 official policy right now
 is avoid the media and keep quiet and ride the wave until election day.

 I don't think that the issue is if Peter Braid wants to speak to 
 issues.  He is not allowed.
 With door to door campaigning, if you disagree with the person, you 
 thank them, then move on.

 In the Record debate.  Peter just repeated party lines to every 
 question.
 Each candidate was asked what they disagree with about their party.  
 Bill Brown (NDP) and Peter said everything was perfect.
 The Liberals and Green party both gave examples of how people who have 
 common ideals and goals can still have differences of opinion and how 
 the party respects the MP's right to have an opinion.
