Why are forums open or closed asks reader

To the Editor:

An all-candidates meeting hosted by the Southampton Residents Association (STA) took place at 10am Saturday 3 Sept. in the Bruce County Museum.

I have been advised that the notice of this event was shared with the media only JUST  BEFORE the meeting (and even that was inadvertently). Leaving no time to invite the general public.

So how does this serve Democracy????  

Maybe that was not the goal here…Maybe the SRA needs to respond.

Any comments from the candidates here??  

All the candidates need to ask questions of themselves before participating in such a forum…. Is it closed or open???
