He and Kamloops-North Thompson candidate Dennis Giesbrecht will be at Jaxsen Pacific in North Kamloops — at 755 Fortune Dr., across from the Fortune Shopping Centre, between Sydney Avenue and Tranquille Road — to speak with owner Evan Angel and with Shawn McLeod next door at Valhalla Smoke House, to discuss issues being faced by B.C.’s small businesses.
