I cannot open the file.
I do however have information on Roger McKinnons run for mayor of Nanaimo.
Roger & Wilf Richard ( of Cable Bay fame) was recently observed & heard whilst dining at the Beefeater restaurant.
Roger loudly pronounced that should he become Mayor of Nanaimo ; he would close the Harmac Pulp mill & give access to Wilf Richards,dream, of developing or selling the Oceanview Golf & Spa.
Whilst the statement is ridiculous it does give pause for thought on who could become Mayor of this already troubled city.
With Bill Bestwick in the running and his views on building a multiplex we are indeed caught between a rock & a hard place.
An Edmonton friend reminded me that MS WORD docx files may be hard to read for many folks. You, Trailblazer, seem to be one of them. I have hopefully repaired my error, changing the file format to pdf which I should have done in the first place. I continue to look for additional factual materials which can enhance this post into a viable Election Manual which will hopefully assist voters in understanding the importance of candidates who not only have a good heart, but understand how the game is played.
1 be 18 or older;
2. be a Canadian citizen; and
3. be a resident of British Columbia for at least 6 months before the election.
With so few requirements should we be surprised by the results?
Perhaps a means test, for candidates, would be in order?
After the minimum requirements, the rest is up to the voters. The public can demand a lot more of candidates than the minimum if they make some effort. Demand more about themselves and their ideas. A means test would not only be undemocratic, it would continue to leave open the field to any number of scoundrels. We don’t have to settle for the minimum requirements, and if we do, we do it at our own peril.
