KAMLOOPS — Todd Stone must feel like the prettiest girl in the dance.

That's what it's like when everyone's looking at you, right?

As the BC Liberal leadership wound to a close this week, it was Stone who was in the crosshairs of all his rivals.

Four of his five opponents signed a letter asking the party to look into his disqualified memberships, which they say total to an abnormally-large sum.

There's no way they would have done that if they didn't consider Stone the main threat in the race.

KAMLOOPS — This week's announcement that the Liberals will freeze conversions to community mailboxes is the classic definition of compromise: it is bound to make no one happy.

The postal workers union and seniors who have trouble leaving their homes won't be happy that door-to-door is not being restored to those who lost it.

Those with an eye on the government's bottom line are likely upset that a cost-saving measure enacted by the previous Conservative government won't be followed through.

Creative media discussion positive, but well of ideas drying up

KAMLOOPS — Councillor Arjun Singh weighed in on the state of local media in Kamloops This Week this week, and of course, like everyone, we're more than happy to hear ideas on how we can do our jobs better.

In all seriousness, we do enough telling people how to do their jobs, it's only fair we accept it once in a while.

Singh laments that fewer journalists are attending council meetings in person, instead choosing to watch the city's live stream from their offices.

There oughta be a study

KAMLOOPS — 2017 could rightly be called the year of the study in Kamloops.

Or the year of the failed study, depending on how you look at it.

The biggest, of course, was the Environmental Assessment Office's review of the KGHM-Ajax mine proposal.
