Interesting to see the amount of recent Kamloops Daily News coverage on the Aboriginal Cogeneration Corporation's continuing hopes to gasify railway ties. Three pieces this week - two articles and editor Mel Rothenburger's column.
The tone of most of the coverage seem to suggest that we lost out, and now the fine city of Prince George stands to gain. I wonder, though, whether Mel is just digging a deeper hole for himself here. Are a significant number of Kamloopsians going to now say - wow! we finally get it - this would have been a great deal for us? Or is the Daily News losing credibility and trust by providing precious column inches to a dead issue locally?
Is this really still an issue that deserves front page coverage in Kamloops? Is Mel unable to let go of the debate because, so far, he has been on the losing side? What is he hoping to accomplish? What other issues are not being covered because ACC got some more ink this week?
