THERE WAS SOME CONFUSION this week after the City of Kamloops released its statement regarding masks in city buildings.
The news release said masks would be “expected” in all public facilities operated by the City. But in a corresponding video, Mayor Ken Christian let slip the word “requirement”.
It’s not a requirement, but you can start to see the confusion.
>It contrasts with what’s happening in some other Canadian cities — and as nearby as Tk’emlups, where Chief Rosanne Casimir stated very clearly that masks are required.
Certainly, language matters.
