FOR YEARS, KAMLOOPS COUNCIL and our local RCMP detachment have been begging for the expansion of the Car 40 program.
The program has a history of success in Kamloops — so much so that council and the detachment have set aside funding and resources to start up a second team.
The sticking point has always come with IH who, despite repeated requests, has failed to approve a second nurse for the program.
