Feedback: Readers react to Kelowna West byelection

Kelowna Capital News web was active with responses to byelection

Ben Stewart claimed his old seat in Kelowna West with a byelection Wednesday night. A few readers of our story online reacted to the news.

Gail Fritsen:

The problem is so few voted per usual here, and the ones that did just voted the same old without any real thought into what we need here which is change and better representativeness for our community.

My question is what will it take to get people off their butts and come out and vote. That’s the tragedy here really. He didn’t win because he’s the best, he won because over (30,000) people didn’t vote. That’s my opinion.

Craig Musgrove:

The problem is they are all crooks. What they say today is different tomorrow, or they hope we all forget what happened last week, month, year or term. Funny how nearly nobody remembers Pierre Elliot Trudeau fingering everyone in Salmon Arm but that was the first thing I thought of when his son started running for leadership of the Liberal party. Just wait until next year, this will all be a memory.
