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.

It’s a necessary evil for some of us in a changing media world where we serve several different platforms.

And the criticism is a little surprising coming from the councillor who prides himself most on adapting to the changing world of technology.
