THE CONCLUSION of Saturday’s mayoral election in Kamloops was as foregone as the conclusion to the movie Titanic.
That’s no disrespect to Turnbull, who seems like a sincere fellow with a heart for his community.
Kudos are his for putting his name down on the ballot for mayor.
But the other name on the ballot is a political machine in Kamloops; one that chews up and spits out opponents not unlike the grain harvesters of my homeland.
