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.
