A Glengarry-Prescott-Russell all-candidates debate set for October 7 in Alexandria has been cancelled because only one hopeful had confirmed his presence.
Liberal Francis Drouin and New Democratic Party representative Normand Laurin had originally confirmed their attendance while Conservative MP Pierre Lemieux and Geneviève Malouin-Diraddo of the Green Party said they would not take part in the forum organized by the Alexandria and District Chamber of Commerce.
But "one of the two candidates who agreed to attend has advised me this morning that he is now not able to attend," reports chamber president Michael Madden.
