An Armchair Mayor editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
ALL THE bargaining and deal-making in Victoria is good entertainment but, in the end, what difference will it really make to us way up here in the hinterlands?

Think about it. Kamloops has enjoyed having one or more MLAs at the cabinet table for most of the past 65 years. It was only during the short-lived Dave Barrett NDP government of the early 1970s that Kamloops hasn’t had a presence on the executive council, and even then, our MLAs were at least members of the governing party.
