Garbula’s sour grapes

During the campaign, Mr. Garbula was at his public service best

In the May 17 edition of the Nelson Star there was an article featuring the reactions of the two unsuccessful candidates in the recent election, Mr. Garbula and Mr. Derkx (“Garbula questions representation” and “Derkx pleased with strides by Greens”).

I took exception to Mr. Garbula’s comments.  During the campaign, Mr. Garbula was at his public service best, but in this issue of the Star, he showed his poor-loser side commenting on how he feels sad for our community due to our electing Michelle Mungall, the NDP candidate. Perhaps because we didn’t follow the rest of the sheep and vote Liberal?

He also commented unfavorably on Ms. Mungall’s leadership in our community over the past four years. Well, she must have done something good to have won with an overwhelming majority of the votes.

And Mr. Derkx: way to keep it classy and positive!
