Kamloops Mayor Reid Hamer-Jackson (in his Reider’s Digest debut at the 28:18 mark) and Kamloops Coun. Dale Bass (15:11) hop in for Episode 70 of Kamloops Last Week.
Hamer-Jackson explains his decision to recuse himself from the Dec. 6 council meeting, talks of an apology from Bass, speaks of being excluded from an in-camera meeting and is questioned on the creation of task forces and a legal quarrel with ASK Wellness and CEO Bob Hughes.
Bass talks of Hamer-Jackson’s “unusual” decision to recuse himself from the entire council meeting, artfully dodges in-camera meeting queries, notes an issue with the mayor’s proposed task forces and trumpets the values of the Integrated Crisis Response Team (formerly Car 40) and complex care beds.
Showmaster Magic Mike Miltimore is celebrated (6:15), with his Riversong Guitars having been honoured with one of music’s great awards.
We debut Miltimore’s new camera angle — the Magic Mirror. Bill makes a rare appearance.
Co-hosts Chris Foulds and Marty Hastings weigh in (47:14) on Hamer-Jackson’s decision.
The KLW crew bids fond farewell (8:55) to Nu Leaf Produce Market and welcomes Cold Control Mechanical to the #LastWeekCliqueSponsorhipConsortium, which includes Gord’s Appliance and Mattress Centre and McDonald’s.
