Letter: Leaving Kamloops due to cost of living

It’s pretty sad when a good, hard-working family or anyone else in this situation can’t get a break from a ruthless rental market

Editor:

The cost of living in Kamloops has become way too high for me and my family, but it wasn’t when I moved here 17 years ago. It wasn’t even like this seven years ago.

How can I pay $3,000 a month, plus utilities? The more affordably priced places get snagged up or just aren’t available, so anyone left gets hung out to dry.

It’s pretty sad when a good, hard-working family or anyone else in this situation can’t get a break from a ruthless rental market.

I think we will be moving to Alberta.

Sorry, but Kamloops is out of hand.
