Kamloops Mayor Reid Hamer-Jackson hops in with Kamloops Last Week for his monthly segment, Reider’s Digest (8:40 mark), brought to you by Cold Control Mechanical.
The mayor offers rebuttals when his absence from recent events is questioned, ponders whether some council members are fed up with him, talks of feeling safer in Mexico than in Kamloops and suggests a survey on the matter.
Hamer-Jackson challenges councillors to get boots on the ground to fight social issues, chimes in on a study that suggests Kamloopsians are down on quality of life in the city, responds to criticism from 2022 mayoral candidate Sadie Hunter and explains his reasoning behind a notice of motion pertaining to a storage facility for the marginalized at 48 West Victoria St.
In Above The Foulds (43:32), co-host Chris Foulds discusses the results of a Thompson Rivers University investigation into complaints against a pair of senior administrators.
In the Tattle of Hastings (48:58), co-host Marty Hastings dives into a tough day in Kamloops sports and shows love to curlers who answered the call.
Showmaster Magic Mike Miltimore and the KLW crew take a wild cross-country skiing trip (4:12) in Mission Flats, with help from Club Car Beverage Company, Gord’s Appliance and Mattress Centre, Cold Control Mechanical, McDonald’s Kamloops and BetStamp.
