MUNICIPAL ELECTION: David Shebib runs silent campaign

Victoria mayoral candidate won't reveal his platform to media, and says politics is doomed to failure

Victoria mayoral candidate David Shebib is true to his anti-establishment views.

Shebib, who is also a Saanich mayoral candidate, offered a simple “no” when asked for his views and platform by the Victoria News.

However he did offer a few musings before hanging up the telephone on reporter Rudy Haugeneder.

Shebib claims virtually everything happening in business and government today, including civic politics, is doomed to failure — “a suicide path.”

He doesn’t blame people for not voting because, in his opinion, the way elections are run is “corrupt” and are thus unable to change the way society is governed.
