An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
KEEPING AN open mind is usually a good thing, but not always.
Kamloops City council got a surprise yesterday when resident Ruth Madsen let the cat out of the bag during public inquiries at the council’s weekly meeting about a proposed development.
According to Madsen, someone had told her about an in-camera discussion by council of a plan to build a two-story, 35,000 sq. ft. farmers market in the Heritage House parking lot.
Apparently, the proposal has also become known among certain community groups, but nothing official has been made public.
