Canvassing in Tilly
We were out canvassing in Tillydrone for RIC on Wednesday. I used to visit area regularly 20-30 years ago and though there have been improvements in some parts, the state of the housing infrastructure has generally deteriorated. People on doorsteps were mostly friendly. Some were very interested in the Independence debate and coming along to a meeting. Others have no interest or understanding, or language or other communication problems. A few are decidedly in the No camp, but most are open to debate and ideas. Canvassing is a great way of reaching out to people.
Addition by Myshele: Every now and then there are folks on the doors who want to have a long chat, whether because they’re curious with lots of questions, angry about the current system, or just eager to talk about independence. By complete coincidence, all the teams met these kinds of people this week. Even if it means less time for chapping other doors, these in-depth conversations can be the most enjoyable part of canvassing.
