  1. A disappointing website. Your mayoral list is not complete.
    Where is Ray Dhaliwal?
    Yes, Kamloops needs to be sustainable, but first we need to focus on the upcoming recession. And that will impact taxpayers.
    #1 concern is the proposed Performing Arts Centre. Last numbers were close to $100 million. Up-to-date numbers will be much higher.
    Can recession hammered taxpayers afford that?
    Arjun Singh wants that centre.
    Most taxpayers will question it.

  2. The list is not intended to be a complete list of candidates. It’s the shortlist of people who are putting a high priority on climate action and local resilience. We encourage folks who are interested in sustainability and future-proofing to use this list as a starting point and do their own homework to confirm their voting choices.

  3. Kamloops is not significant contributer to global emissions. Canada on a whole is is 7th place with our nations emissions being slightly above Iran and Turkey. Climate resiliance is simply NOT a priority in this election, while crackheads have taken over the entire downtown and driving local business to close.

  4. We understand that everyone has different priorities. We made this resource available for those who are interested, and have received a lot of positive feedback. Obviously, voters should follow their conscience.
