The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - BY TERRY ROBERTS

A two-hour pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion session hosted by the pro­vin­cial Lib­er­als in Bay Roberts last week gen­er­ated plenty of dis­cus­sion about the state of the prov­ince.

And for­mer Con­ser­va­tive­turned-Lib­eral Brad Ca­bana of Hick­man’s Har­bour was among those pro­vid­ing in­put as the Op­po­si­tion con­tin­ued a cross-prov­ince se­ries of meet­ings to gauge the views of vot­ers lead­ing up to the Oc­to­ber 11 pro­vin­cial elec­tion.

It was Ca­bana’s first pub­lic show of sup­port for the pro­vin­cial Lib­er­als since his high-pro­file split with the gov­ern­ing Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tives. Ca­bana, who moved to this prov­ince a year ago, made head­lines when he at­tempted to chal­lenge Premier Kathy Dun­derdale for the party lead­er­ship.

His can­di­dacy was re­fused, how­ever, be­cause the party ar­gued that the peo­ple who signed his nom­i­na­tion pa­pers were not of­fi­cial PC mem­bers.
