FourChange ‘endorsement’ an insult to councillors

To the editor:

Re: Fourchange.org. This rude disrespect to Kelowna’s voters, with the utterly ridiculous claim of grassroots support with so few actually willing to admit to membership, smacks of personal attacks, character assassination, and mealy-mouthed mudslinging.

Given the complete absence of substance—this ‘group’ is not saying what they dislike, is not saying what they like, is not saying what was done wrong, and refuses to say what they would do differently—I think they have every reason to be deeply ashamed.

I hope that the poor councillors endorsed by this invented, anonymous ‘grassroots citizens group’ of offensive smear campaigners have the decency, character and honesty to request that their names not be used by those who employ such low and cowardly tactics.

The councillors who are named (and thereby insulted as unable to win without such desperate idiocy) as the heroes of this ‘grassroots movement’ just invented by the owner of the announcing web site are: Luke Stack, Andre Blanleil, Robert Hobson and Graeme James.

Gentlemen: Would you care to comment on this “support” of which you are suddenly the lucky beneficiaries?
