DURING LAST MONTH’S by-election, there was considerable interest and discussion surrounding the old Kamloops Daily News Building, previously known as, The Bay.
The site was a contentious issue, with conversations focussed on the waste of money. Others were concerned about the lack of planning while still others lamented the missing component…a solid vision for the future of that half square block.
Of course it didn’t help matters that throughout the election, the KDN building was being torn down, brick by slow brick. It was a painful reminder of, “there is no plan B” and was happening at the worst possible time.
But rather than dwell in the past and rehash the obvious, maybe it’s time to start talking about the future of that site.
