I am staying in a very nice hotel - rate is about $125 a night I think. The meals are good. I would not stay in such a nice place if I was paying my own way but I would probably still eat as well, or better.
The point, though, is that this conference has been of enormous value to the citizens of Kamloops. For three reasons:
- Informing the provincial government of Kamloops concerns and issues.
- Learning local government best practices from across BC.
- Meeting other across councillors from BC, and learning about their issues and responses.
