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.
