Media Release – Mayor and Council Candidates Weigh in on Centre for the Arts

Kamloops, B.C., October 7, 2022 — Kamloops Centre for the Arts Society is pleased with the response rate to a survey distributed to candidates running for mayor and council in the October 15 municipal election. 

Twenty-four of the twenty-nine candidates responded to the survey, which questioned them on whether they believe infrastructure contributes to livability, the importance of culture, whether they would support a centre for the arts within the upcoming four-year term, and whether the City should be one of the primary funders of the project. 

“We appreciate that the majority of candidates took the time to complete the survey and provide comments, which we believe will help inform our 5,000 members and other voters as they prepare to cast their ballots this month,” said KCA Chair Brenda Aynsley. “Kamloops is a growing city, and development of recreation and cultural infrastructure – including a centre for the arts – needs to keep pace with that growth.” 

The public can access the results of the survey on the KCA website
