Well, the election is done and the post-mortems have started. Oak Bay News’ Vivian Moreau has posted a piece about the results, declaring Tara Ney a “surprise winner”. I am likewise surprised she polled as well as she did, given she is a non-incumbent. In contrast, in 2005, Nils Jensen and Frank Carson, Jr, both incumbents, topped the polls. That being said, I am uncertain whether Tara is that elusive fourth vote on bike lanes and other key issues. She struck me as progressive, intelligent and passionate, so I am hopeful.
