Nothing worse than this council

Dear Editor:

I would like to respond to a letter to the editor from former Penticton councillor Gus Boersma (Herald, Nov. 1).

In a nutshell, Mr. Boersma cautions us against removing all of our city council because we may get someone even worse (the devil you know). With all due respect Mr Boersma, who could be worse?

Hitler, Stalin, and Bin Laden are dead. Dracula and Wolfman are (probably) fictitious. Putin is busy leveling Syria, and Donald Trump won’t come here because he has been banned from the Penticton Lakeside Resort by David Prystay.

Who exactly should we fear more than the devil we know? Sorry sir, I will be voting ABC (Anybody But Current), and that includes the possibility of voting for a tree stump or my neighbour’s cat over our current mayor and city council.

George Murai
