Mel, regarding your article “Making 200 years of bumpy roads”, the article is very interesting, however many history books will have to be rewritten naming Stuart not Simon Fraser as the person who named the River Thompson in honour of his friend David Thompson.
Your sin is not as great as the prince who was recently photographed nakedly cavorting; you are also in the public eye and must pay the price. In view of your past interesting comments we forgive you.
Editor’s note: Forgiveness is sometimes better than asking permission. You are, of course, correct about Simon Fraser, but the Armchair Mayor confesses a few other historical events weren’t presented exactly as they might have occurred either — his defence is that it’s a challenge to tell the complete history of Kamloops in 560 words.
