I don’t get around much anymore, so this morning’s official opening of the Kamloops Airport terminal renos was the first time I’d been out there in quite awhile. Very nicely done, I must say. Finally, the building gets not only much-needed space but some attractive decor.
The project was a long time coming — it was noted at the ceremony that it spanned three mayors, a couple of MLAs and at least two MPs.
Earlier this week I mentioned that Kevin Krueger was not at last Saturday’s Business Excellence Awards. Neither was he at the Keystone Awards, and he’s been a no-show for quite a few other things. But, I said, surely he would be there for the airport do.
But, no Kevin. He was busy in Vancouver with another big announcement down there. Well and good, but I don’t recall another cabinet minister who has been so invisible in his own riding. And it’s not as though Kevin is new to cabinet — in his previous posts he still found time to make it back to town once in awhile.
