An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE KAMLOOPS BLAZERS haven’t been a very good hockey team for quite awhile but there’s no question they’ve been great community boosters and have provided the city with a lot of entertainment.
If it weren’t for the Blazers, we wouldn’t have the arena that has hosted so many different kinds of events — sports and otherwise, such as exhibitions, conventions and concerts including the likes of Bob Dylan, Shania Twain and Gordon Lightfoot.
So it’s hard to begrudge the smokin’ deal the organization got on upgrades to the Sandman Centre.
