Let's do a little thought experiment.
If Sharon Shepherd were still mayor of Kelowna, would columnist Lori Welbourne have stripped to the waist in her office during an interview? I doubt it.
It seems current mayor Walter Gray, who has (at least in this circumstance) the misfortune to be male, was entrapped by a sophomoric stunt pulled by a publicity-hungry columnist who has forgotten that she is not the story.
As a new resident of the City of Kelowna, I cringed when the CTV national news ran the "revealing" interview - edited, of course - and wondered out loud how conservative Kelowna would respond.
Conservative or not, such bad taste is never in fashion.
