IN THE LEDGE – Armchair Mayor makes it into the Throne Speech debate

An excerpt from a speech by Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Peter Milobar during the Throne Speech debate this week in the Legislature:

Now, there’s a gentleman, a former colleague, a former editor in Kamloops, who’s currently an electoral area director and writes for the media quite a bit. He and I haven’t always seen eye to eye. We’re collegial. We get along. We can have a good, robust debate. I tend to not agree with most of his editorials. He wrote an editorial about the throne speech. Mel Rothenburger wrote an editorial about the throne speech that I read today, and I’m going to quote him, because I like the one little quote. I think it sums up the throne speech very well, especially from our part of the province. He said: “To borrow from a trend in meat-like products these days, it was a beyond-nothing burger.” That’s what his assessment of the throne speech was.

    If he doesn’t agree with most of your editorials he is way out in left field.

  2. I take this as evidence Pete is finally accepting the wisdom offered by those of us who are over 65.
    Carry on, Mel.
