VETERAN BROADCAST JOURNALIST-turned website scribe Bob Price called to ask me who’s going to win Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo in October.
He was putting together a look-ahead story for The Orca, the online publication for which he now writes.
What did Jim Harrison predict, I wanted to know.
“Too close to call,” said Price.
I can do better than that, I told him. If the election were held tomorrow, Cathy McLeod would keep her seat for the Conservatives by 3,000 votes. But that is not a prediction of what will happen Oct. 21.
