How to Cobb it up!

According to the Williams Lake Tribune Liberal MLA Walt Cobb shot off and like a goaltender that misses an easy save, likely wishes he did not let his anger explode. Even his (Cobb's) Liberal supporters grimaced at Walt Cobb's response to a 19-year-old nursing student who asked how he justified his government's "mean-spirited" attitude to the youth and the elderly, reports the Tribune.

"A lot of work has been done to look after the seniors in our community," Cobb replied.

"It is unfortunate that you should be so young and have the attitude you have. I'd feel bad having somebody like you looking after my mother."

The audience rallied around the young speaker who posed the question, and gave her a standing ovation when she returned to her seat. - Williams Lake Tribune, May 5, 2005
