Letter: Come on, Kamloops council, show the North Shore some love


On Valentine’s Day evening, my partner and I saw the play The Love List, which was performed by the Kamloops Players at the small Stage House Theatre on the North Shore.

Until that night, I did not even know we had such a funky, cozy theatre venue on our side of town. It is so awesome.

I highly recommend this play, which runs on Feb. 21 and Feb, 22. It is fresh, super funny and the actors and actress are so talented.

The evening made me contemplate political matters. I live and work on the North Shore and am disappointed by the uneven level of capital dollars spent on the South Shore compared to the North Shore.

There are plans in place to ask for funding to increase a pathway in Sahali. What about our McArthur Island pathway, which is uneven, bumpy and unusable when the snow melts due to massive puddles?

What about our Fortune Drive versus West Victoria Street upgrades? Seriously, our Fortune Drive is as bumpy and uneven as was West Victoria Street when it was gravel.

Is spending based on who pays more property taxes? As in a love relationship, in which both people contribute equally to its success, so too should there be equal dollar for dollar spending between the North and South shores.
