Table manners 

Dear Editor,I would like to commend Stephen Kimber on his in-depth article on Doug Sparks and the school board seating dispute. This is a topic where the “mainstream” papers were disappointingly incomplete in their reporting. I know Doug Sparks and I knew the story behind his refusal to take his seat and it was great to finally read an article that bothered to take the time to tell the whole story. I understand if people disagree with Spark’s methods, but to hear others condemn him outright based on the flawed information they’ve gotten from the papers has been immensely frustrating.Kudos to Stephen Kimber and the Coast for taking away our excuse for ignorance. I only hope enough voters from Sparks’ Preston riding get a chance to read the article before the next election.
