Progressive Conservative Todd Smith, Liberal Robert Quaiff and New Democrat Joanne Belanger were in the hot seat Thursday afternoon as Poverty Roundtable Hastings Prince Edward hosted the final All Candidates Meeting of the campaign at Eastminster United Church.

Candidates fielded a number of questions pertaining to what their parties would do to tackle issues surrounding poverty, such as a living wage, affordable housing, transportation, health care and food security and how to correct the root causes so that no one is left behind.
