WATCHING THE FIRST MEETING the new Kamloops council this week should have left the viewer feeling optimistic.
From a procedural perspective, did it run smoothly? Not always. But that’s okay.
The big test came when Bob Hughes of ASK Wellness was called to the carpet to give a presentation on his organization and its operations.
Reid Hamer-Jackson may be the mayor, but he is certainly not the mayor of the Bob Hughes Fan Club.
Regardless, Hughes’ presentation was both passionate and well-received, with councillors asking relevant and respectful questions.
