Episode 89 of Kamloops Last Week is vivacious.
Four interview subjects — Kamloops city coun. Katie Neustaeter (18:28 mark), Shaun Clouston and Logan Stankoven (50:17) of the Kamloops Blazers and Kamloops Y Dream Home Lottery spokesperson Bryce Herman (39:35) — deliver insight on Tournament Capital happenings.
Neustaeter talks of a bylaw amendment — one she championed — that would ban open drug use in public spaces, addresses criticism from Dr. Carol Fenton, Interior Health’s medical health officer in Kamloops, recaps wooing the 2027 North American Indigenous Games delegation and finds glimpses of hope in the relationship between council and Kamloops Mayor Reid Hamer-Jackson.
Blazers’ captain Stankoven wants to put an exclamation point on his incredible WHL career by winning a league title. The Seattle Thunderbirds stand in his Blazers’ way in the Western Conference final, which gets underway on Saturday in Kent, Wash.
Stankoven and Blazers’ head coach Clouston look ahead to the Seattle series.
Herman provides information on the $1.3 million Dream home at 2197 Coldwater Dr. in Juniper West and notes all fundraising proceeds will stay within city limits.
The show opening goes a little haywire.
Mike Miltimore rubs shoulders with Premier David Eby and Prince William and Kate Middleton (5:35), co-hosts Chris Foulds and Marty Hastings discuss dreams (8:16) and mental health, and our weekly sponsorship improv (14:35) goes off the rails.
We can’t do the show without Gord’s Appliance and Mattress Centre, Volkswagen of Kamloops, McDonald’s and the Kamloops Y Dream Home Lottery.
