An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
WHEN DELEGATES to the annual B.C. Chamber of Commerce convention get together in Kamloops later this month, they’ll have plenty of ideas on how to further the interests of business.
A great many of them will have to do with taxation and how businesses should pay less of it.
But B.C.’s businesses are concerned about social issues, as well. The Kamloops chamber will put forward a resolution proposing a way to tackle the growing problem of discarded needles on city streets and in parks and public washrooms.
It’s a serious health hazard.
