Heather Tremain, Alan Garr and Virgina Weiler.
It's not often that a politician writes about a reporter. Usually it’s the other way around. But when a reporter starts getting political, my journalistic tendencies tend to flare up.
Not to long ago Allen Garr added me as a friend on Facebook. I accepted his request and now we are friends. I have always admired Allen as a reporter he does a good job of getting to the bottom of civic issues. On top of it all, word on the street is he’s very respected by politicians and citizens of every stripe.
At first I thought Allen joined Facebook to show off his bee video or maybe to use it to snoop for leads. Afterall, lots of crazy stuff gets posted on the web. But after a few days, Allen let his Facebook friends know he was running on a slate with Heather Tremain and Virgina Weiler with the Action Team for the Vancity board of directors.
