Quotes of the day (s)

"The older you get, the more people think you have lost your marbles.
What they don't realize is you have gained experience. A lot of these young
people will find that out one day."--Abbotsford mayor George Ferguson is defeated after 31 years in office, in today's Vancouver Sun.

"The first sentence in a profile Wednesday of Beaver Valley school trustee
candidate Julie Phillips incorrectly stated that she "is happy about the
idea of school closures." It should have read she is "NOT happy," as the rest of the story indicates."
--A correction in the Nov. 14 Trail Times

"It's like Martin Sheen running for president!"--Jennifer Clarke, defeated candidate for Vancouver mayor, bemoans the sucess of her about-to-be-elected opponent Larry Campbell, in the Nov. 16 Vancouver Sun.
(And as my Report colleague Kevin Michael Grace argues...that may be more true than she thought!)
