As everyone in this city knows, our new council has been a terrible disappointment.
We got change but not for the better. But some good has come from this. The people of Penticton have started to pull together, united by their outrage at their councils bullheaded and unethical refusal to allow consensus and consultation. Good people are now spending many hours meeting, talking and planning. We have determination, wisdom and experience.
It is also disappointing no councillor has resigned or at least shown the courage to take the side of the voters by saying, what we are doing is not right. None of them can expect any political future in our city or elsewhere. They should remember the phrase, contamination by association.
