ROTHENBURGER – No sign of a wave coming to help out candidates

EVERYBODY IN TOWN knows who’s going to win the next federal election. Just ask them.

And who will be the next MP for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo? Just ask them.

Here’s a hint — it won’t be Gina Myhill-Jones.

I don’t mean to be unkind, but it’s unlikely Myhill-Jones will come anywhere close to Bill Sundhu’s second-place finish in 2015. There’s nothing about her candidacy that gives the party cause for confidence.

The first is that nobody knows who she is. The news release about her impending nomination by acclamation set for Sunday notes she’s “an active community leader and volunteer” who created a popular Facebook page called Cariboo Neighbours 911.
