Makes me wonder what percentage of turnout we actually had :135:

The results were posted live on the city website and were being updated as the returns came in. They did a good job of that. Here's the final numbers: https://www.kelowna.ca/city-hall/city-government/election-and-voting/past-election-results/11

the truth wrote:4 more years of *bleep* , :swear: 4 more years of out of control crime in kelowna :swear:


In the interest of "Truth" ... Can we get some truth around the wild crime stats thrown around this election? In various conversations, I think I heard Dyas and other candidates claim Kelowna was #4, #5 and even #1 in terms of Canadian crime rates per city. This is simply not true. Kelowna is currently #34 based on Maclean's widely regarded crime index. This is a downward trend.

What is true is the gap between rich and poor has increased. Wages above 100K have increased, widening the gap between the very rich, and the very poor. So yes, visible poverty has increased, homelessness has increased, but if we're to draw a corollary line between crime statistics, and what we're seeing on the streets, than let's not cherry pick - let's talk about all crime in this index. The largest spike in crime is fraud. A pretty extreme # compared the other crimes listed here. And this is just a measure of those who have been caught. There's very wealthy people in this community. Do you really think they've earned every penny fairly? That they pay their legal share of taxes?

A few years ago, when I worked in the office of a prominent developer, I stumbled upon a case file. Turns out, he spent some time in prison for fraud. White collar, high level fraud in Alberta. There, he made some associates. These people continue to own multiple properties in this town. They continue to contract one another's services. They go off book as much as they can. They use workers from temp agencies, so they don't have to create permanent jobs. They maximize profits for themselves, pay as little as possible, don't pay overtime. They then advocate for less taxes - cuts to the taxes that provide social services for their workers who get injured on the job because of the corners they cut around safety. Workers who are then prescribed painkillers by family doctors, without being adequately warned about how addictive they are.

Stop bitching about a few stragglers sleeping on the streets downtown and target the real criminals. The people who want to turn this town into their own playground, who play by different rules, whose crimes have a far greater financial impact on our society and growing inequality, than some petty BnEs or property theft.

A recent poll on Castanet said that over 60% of people believe crime in Kelowna is definitely getting worse. The people of Kelowna voted for the same mayor and mostly the same councilors as before.

If the crime rate is getting worse with these people in control, why did you vote them in again?

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Thank goodness the national crime index is based on measurable facts, rather than the hysterical feelings of Castanet users.

What do you actually expect council to do?

Feel free to add up the numbers for city council members, to get a total there.

How can that work when each voter can voter for "up to" 8 candidates?

I only voted for 3 as did my wife.

Since DocStress posted a link from election BC, we know how many Kelowna residents actually voted. What a sad amount that is

I knew what the numbers were but I was questioning the way you were suggesting to add it up. It just wouldn't work that way.
