An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE VISION FOR A PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE is about to be put to the test again.
Kamloops voters will go to the polls on Saturday, April 4.
The question will be, “Are you in favour of the City of Kamloops borrowing up to $45 million to construct a Kamloops Centre for the Arts?”
Except for the amount, that’s almost exactly the same as the question on the 2015 ballot when the first PAC plan was voted down.
Council will also spend $35,000 for a communications plan.
