From the Election Coverage Self-Fulfilling Prophecy Dept:
A report in today's Spectator on last night's all-candidates debate for Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale ran 663 words.
546 words, or 82% of the total, were dedicated to an exchange between incumbent Conservative candidate David Sweet and Liberal challenger Dave Braden.
Just 40 words, or 6% of the total, were reserved for NDP candidate Nancy McBain. A mere 28 words, or just 4% of the total, were left over at the end for Green candidate Peter Ormond.
The other 52 words (more than either McBain or Ormond received) conveyed general information about the debate.
The A-D-F-W candidates will have another debate on April 18, 6:00 PM at McMaster University.
