Quoted From page two

“Abbotsford First Counsellor, Sandy Blue & guest Vince Dimanno joined our meeting to give an account of some of the concerns and experiences of being an Abbotsford elected Counselor. All Abbotsford First elected counsellors must keep true to our core values of governance & policy and not let their personal views cloud what this Party set out to do.”

Quote from the current AbbotsfordFirst website (source):

“The Abbotsford First Electors Society is not involved in governing. Each AbbotsfordFIRST councillor makes decisions independently.”
