Re: Circus-like atmosphere engulfs candidates meeting (News, )ct. 22)
It is important to make a clear distinction between the way Victoria mayoral candidate Changes the Clown (Rob Duncan) spoke and the way candidate Riga Godron and David Shebib behaved at the all-candidates meeting on Oct. 16.
Changes made an unconventional but very polite and charmingly creative presentation about child poverty.
By contrast, the shouting and interruptions by Godron and Shebib can only be described as outrageously boorish.
It is one thing to present one’s views in an unorthodox, forceful and passionate manner, but it is quite another to be rude and abusive and show no respect at all for other points of view.

After a quick search of Gordon Pollard on google I quickly learned that he sits on the board of directors for “Pollard Banknote limited”. This company makes makes millions every year on pull tabs and bingo. In other words he makes his money on other peoples addiction. Maybe I am passionate and unorthodox but I stand for the people not on them.
