Very honestly, these last few months have passed FAR too quickly. And along with the passage of this last month, we are almost at the end of the election campaign. It’s been almost surreal this go ’round. In the past I’ve always had several media requests throughout my campaigns. I’ve had TV, print, radio, web – media of all sorts. But this time, in my third election, not so much. And part of me can’t help but wonder if it’s because I’ve chosen to focus my efforts on an equal rights and anti-bullying campaign. Are these issues that the media simply doesn’t want to touch?
The one story I have been asked to contribute to, surprise surprise, is actually a photographic assignment. And hopefully it will be live on the website for the Star Phoenix soon. A few candidates, in key ridings, were asked to take their cameras out and photograph things within their riding that held meaning for them, and that would highlight those unique aspects of the riding. It was a pretty easy assignment for me… but even in there, I managed to share an anti-bullying message. 😉 I promise to share a link once it’s available. Until then, my earlier question stands.
Is the issue of equality and bullying just too hot for the local – let’s face it, CONSERVATIVE – media to handle? What are your thoughts?
