Councillor isn’t vindicated after breaking rules

We take our medicine without ado. We pay the price for not knowing the rules we broke.

To the Editor,

Re: Elections B.C. finds no intent to violate campaign regulations, Nov. 27.

I was on a stretch of highway driving at the speed limit when suddenly the road transitioned into a residential area. Before I realized what happened a traffic cop pulled me over. After he explained why, I offered:

“I’m sorry, I didn’t see a sign. I didn’t know.”

As he handed me a hefty speeding ticket he replied, “Now you do.”

No gripes. OK, a little, but we take our medicine without ado. We pay the price for not knowing the rules we broke.

Coun. Diane Brennan, a veteran of local politics, is “happy,” but for an entirely different reason. And, she is not “vindicated,” not by any account.
