He was a contender

Earlier this month, the Salmon Arm Observer's Mike Simmons reported Michel Saab would be running for the provincial Greens in Shuswap during the upcoming election campaign. Dr. Saab has been a school trustee for the past 15 years. But he's also a former provincial Liberal, having run for the party in the 1991 - a fact worth considering. Because, during that election, Dr. Saab came within 1.87 percentage points of beating New Democrat winner Shannon O'Neill. This, despite the fact Dr. Saab spent just $6,267 on that campaign - $27,305 less than Ms. O'Neill. will be running against incumbent Liberal candidate George Abbot and New Democrat hopeful Dale Townsend.
