The very reason we want him on council it would ensure that there was never going to be an all in one vote ever again. there would always be one vote against everything.

That is the reason you’d like him on council.

I’d make my picks based on their capabilities rather than their sheer obstinance.

The fact that Mr. Zeger chooses to justify his residency on the basis he found someone to leave town on his behalf is telling. It undermines his attempts to demonstrate that he is for change “done right”. He is anti-change. He should just admit it.

It’s pretty ironic that Mr. Zeger takes this position. Isn’t he an immigrant to Canada himself? I wonder if he sat at the border waiting for someone to leave Canada before we let him in.

I remember this city as far back as the fifties and I knw we have to progress, but at the same time
I think we need an alternate voice and the voice of discontent as well as progressive voices.
The only reason, I want to see someone like John is because the present gang in city hall have stuck it to us for more than the last two years.

Isn't it convenient that in all his attempts to slander Castanet members and management, he has never once mentioned that he holds the dubious honour of being one of the very few that have been banned from this site for consistently rude and obnoxious behaviour. Is this a man you want on council?

I'm wondering John, what chapter in your Vote-Getting Handbook gave you the idea to trot out a blanket insult to a local online community with over 60,000 members? Is this indicative of the wisdom you hope to bring to town council?

Umm my thoughts exactly. If i was ever considering voting for him before, his blatantly rude comments on the other board would make me think twice. If he speaks like that about people he doesn't even know, i wonder how he speaks about people that he disagrees with in real life (ie on council)

I note this morning that Mr. Zeger has had the good sense to remove the offending remark from his discussion forum, but only to replace it with a lame attempt to divert attention from his poor judgement with a hastily fabricated , and totally off the mark, paranoid conspiracy theory.

I have always contended that Mr. Zeger is an intelligent and informed man in matters of environmental sustainability and inovative city planning, but it is also transparently plain to me that he lacks the emotional stability to be of benefit to city council. His combative, reactionary nature would have city business in a constant state of upheaval, grinding to a halt at every turn. He is a one-trick-pony who is long on complaints and short on solutions.

But hey, don't take my word for it. Read his discussion forum. Read his blog. Do a little detective work and find some of the posts on this site that were instrumental in him wearing out his welcome here. Come to know the man as I have and you too will see that there are plenty of wiser choices for someone to help run Kelowna.

Yeah, he's edited that post probably five times already this morning. He's also a little hazy on the distinction between libel and slander.

He certainly earns points for consistency. His default position when he encounters opinions that don't march in lockstep with his is always the same...insults and intimidation. He digs himself into a hole that gets deeper with every one of his reactionary and vindictive outbursts. I have said many times that I don't think he is council material, but it appears that he is doing a good job of showing that to the electorate on his own.

There are 30+ candidates. You can vote in an entire new council without voting for that whack job.

Might be EST.

I did notice that almost all of his posts have "Last edit" underneath them.

Attention deficit issues come to mind.

Thanks for posting that link. You owe me 20 minutes of my life back.

Which of course begs the question of why you are making such an issue over my posts? I'm just one vote among thousands, why the vendetta? As a potential public figure you must be aware that there are always going to be people who disagree with you, how are you going to deal with them? This is a point I've made over and over, that as one given to overly emotional reactions when someone disagrees with you, and the amount of time you devote to those reactions, where are you going to find the time to function as a councillor, especially since you hold more than a few controversial stands on local issues and there surely will be no shortage of people who disagree with you?

In reply to the above post, John Zeger wrote:Fluffy is also correct in suggesting that he being an insignificant person, no one should pay any attention to his tireless efforts to defame me. Therefore, I would advise any intelligent reader to ignore him and treat his remarks as the musing of a crank.


That is rather slippery of you John, but it does save you the inconvenience of actually answering the question. You do have a bit of the politician in you, don't you?

I understand that your Castanet posting privileges have been reinstated in light of the upcoming election. Why not grace us with your presence? I'm sure I'm not the only one with questions for you.
