PETERS – There oughta be a study

Studies get mocked for being expensive make-work projects, but when they’re done well, they lay the basis for the smartest long term decisions

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.

It was, essentially, one big study that, after years of asking questions, came to a clear conclusion.

In parallel, an international consulting firm completed its own study of the mine project, commissioned by the City of Kamloops.
