No B.C. Liberals available for Mental Health debate

Voters at an “all candidates” election debate on mental health and addiction missed out on one key viewpoint Monday night.

That’s because, despite going to “great lengths” and extending “numerous” invitations, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA)’s B.C. branch said no southern Vancouver Island candidate was available to represent the B.C. Liberals at the Victoria event.

Instead, there was just an empty chair on stage.

Metro requested an interview with any B.C. Liberal candidate of the party's choosing on Tuesday, but the request was declined. A spokesperson sent a statement by email listing the government's achievents on mental health and addictions treatments.
