The greed and absence of moral compass among this Thompson-Nicola Regional District gang is remarkable.

Networking with staff at Hotel 540 over (unlimited taxpayer-funded) drinks is a practice that speaks volumes. I didn't know that alcohol elevates IQ & EQ, thereby yielding better planning and decisions. One could see this group now discussing (over drinks) how there was no way to know their self-indulgence was unacceptable and unethical. No one told them!
Unfortunately, it seems politics attracts these characteristics. I recall MP David Dingwall a dozen or so years ago famously saying, "I'm entitled to my entitlements.”
A huge thanks to Kamloops resident Jacob Adams for taking a stand and protesting the TNRD spending controversy — and especially to KTW’s Jessica Wallace for the amazing reporting.
