Santa Claus, Buddy the Elf and Kamloops City Coun. Stephen Karpuk are interviewed in Episode 71 of Kamloops Last Week, which also includes the conclusion of the case of the missing Fulton Cup trophy.

Karpuk (at the 13:55 mark) talks of his desire to grow business in Kamloops, improve safety and security in the city, work better with shelter providers and make the Tournament Capital more friendly to cyclists.

Is overconsumption an issue at Kamloops Blazers’ games? Karpuk has thoughts (25:28).

Co-host Chris Foulds (3:55) shares thoughts on Mayor Reid Hamer-Jackson and city council and engages with Karpuk in a spirited conversation (18:17) over recent in-camera meetings.

Fulton Cup participants K.T. Toering, Colton Meikle, Bobby-Raye Farrow, Adam Phillpotts, Makenna Blattner, Hannah Cady, Matteo Cuzzetto, Sarah Brouwer, Jocelyn Orr, Fraser Jacoby, Temi Aina and Joey Galloway search for the guilty party in the trophy caper (55:27), along with organizer Will Blair.

Eleven children — Audrey, Lena, Owen, Ainsley, Kasen, Mari, Jack, Tegan, Blayke, Ada and Hayes — bring questions to Santa and Buddy the Elf at 33:26.

Foulds, co-host Marty Hastings and showmaster Magic Mike Miltimore (emboldened by his new camera angle, the Magic Mirror) relive their weekend of song, with help from Gord’s Appliance and Mattress Centre, Cold Control Mechanical and McDonald’s at 10:31.
