I got a chance to sit down with Dustan Hlady for an exclusive interview and ask him a couple questions I thought were most important, as he runs for a federal seat in the Canadian Election happening October 19th. I first met Dustan in 1999, and was quite excited to film his interview, as he’s always been one of the most honest people I’ve ever met.
Dustan is running in a new Saskatchewan riding called “Moose Jaw, Lake Centre, Langian.” He’s running with the NDP in a race heated over talk of corruption on the Conservative side while Dustan has seen a massive sea change for the riding that at first was seen as a no-chance for anyone not Conservative in the polls. Public talk of infighting and misdeeds of Conservative candidates aside, Dustan is the only one anyone’s really seen knocking on doors and attending events across the riding. That must have a huge impact on the growing tide in his direction to win.
We’ll be releasing other parts of the interview as we move closer to the election in these final two weeks.
Disclaimer: I’d like to claim I’m unbiased as I’m American and can’t vote in Canada -but I’m all-in for Dustan. He’s of incorruptible character, is the kind of person that bridges different groups together, has long been the voice of the less fortunate, and we’ve had the pleasure of having him write for Citadel in the past.
