NOW THAT Peter Milobar is off to Victoria, Kamloops city council will soon find itself without its leader.
While some might find disagreements with Milobar’s leanings on particular political issues, or his larger ideological bent, few could argue his steady hand leading this council.
It’s the third council Milobar has been elected to preside over, and it’s a group that might be his most difficult.
He has had to keep a group of disparate voices and experience levels on task and on target – not an easy mission, especially when some councillors seemed more enamoured with city council as dogmatic forum than utilitarian decision-making body.
