Former MP Jim Hillyer Fires Back at Lethbridge Conservative Candidate

Jim Hillyer is firing back at Lethbridge's Conservative candidate over comments she made about his track record during an all-candidates forum this week.

Former Lethbridge Member of Parliament Jim Hilllyer is not a happy camper. Hillyer, now the Tory candidate in Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner was among the topics at Tuesday night's all-candidates forum in Lethbridge. Lethbridge Conservative candidate Rachael Harder told the audience that Lethbridge voters have not been well-served for the past four years and their voice deserves to be heard. While Hillyer admits to not attending most of the candidate forums four years ago, along with several other Conservative candidates he says Harder is trying to defend herself during this campaign. Hillyer says he has an open door policy and has regular consultations year-round with groups, individuals and organizations. He says his track record with constituents speaks for itself. Hillyer says he took Harder's comments the other night by surprise - Kyla Rae, Steve Krysak, Veryl Todd, Tom Roulston
