Victoria Council Candidate Margaret Lucas has very diverse supporters

So far I have never seen a group of people on Facebook come out in an unsolicited way like this in support for one candidate.   Margaret Lucas has a very diverse group of people that like her.

What I find very interesting is that both Susan Brice and Lynn Hunter back Margaret.  Susan Brice was the BC Liberal MLA for Saanich South from 2001-2005 and was the Social Credit candidate in the 1989 Oak Bay Gordon Head by-election.  Lynn Hunter was the NDP MP for Saanich Gulf Islands from 1988 to 1993.

Here is the Facebook posting:

Victoria BC is an interesting city off of the coast of BC. I think it has everything to be one of the great cities on earth other than the public will to be the best.
  • Robert Randall I have met Margaret Lucas; she manages the Hotel Rialto. Smart business person, knows a lot about issues and downtown and would be a good fit on council in the style of Bea Holland and Helen Hughes.
